Creating OpenEdge REST Web Services : REST Applications : REST services in OpenEdge : Planning the URI structure of a REST service : Create services
Create services
First, you create one or more services, each with a unique service_name. You also define the URIs for all the resources relative to the service. REST_resource is a path that can branch to multiple levels of parent-child nodes. But each individual REST_resource uniquely identifies a single REST resource. See Adding REST resources to a service for more information.
Note that the parent node /rest, in the URI structure. It is included to illustrate that you can define a relative URI path structure to suit your needs. When the service name follows the /rest path element, it distinguishes the AppServer hosted resources from the static HTML, JSON, and JavaScript resources that may also be deployed as part of the application.
