A RESTful API is an application program interface (API) that uses HTTP requests to GET, PUT, POST and DELETE data.

A RESTful API — also referred to as a RESTful web service — is based on representational state transfer (REST) technology, an architectural style and approach to communications often used in web services development.

Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) makes it easy to develop modern REST interfaces for relational data in the Oracle Database, Oracle Database 12c JSON Document Store, and Oracle NoSQL Database. A mid-tier Java application, ORDS maps HTTP(S) verbs (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, etc.) to database transactions and returns any results formatted using JSON.

URL Structure

  • rest-server is the REST server to contact for your identity domain. To learn the name of this server:

  2. In the list of services, locate the entry for Oracle Database Cloud Service and then click Details.
  3. The REST Endpoint field shows the REST server to contact for your identity domain; for example, https://dbaas.oraclecloud.com/ or https://dbcs.emea.oraclecloud.com/.
  • endpoint-path is the relative path that defines the endpoint.
