The Open Data Protocol (OData) is a Web protocol (http based) for querying and updating data.
OData does this by applying and building upon Web technologies such as HTTP, (AtomPub) and JSON to provide access to information from a variety of applications, services, and stores.
It enable a new level of data integration and interoperability across a broad range of clients, servers, services and tools.
OData is released under the Open Specification Promise to allow anyone to freely interoperate with OData implementations.
