Incremental REST services
A REST Web service is deployed using a REST service definition file (.paar) that calls ABL service interface APIs in the ABL application. To deploy incremental REST service definitions into an existing PAS for OpenEdge instance's OE ABL Web application, you need to package the .paar file and any ABL .p or .r language files that support the service interface's API. Once the package is available on the PAS for OpenEdge instance's host server you will:
1. Unpack the files into a temporary location.
2. Use the PAS for OpenEdge instance's deployREST command-line utility to deploy the REST service definition file into an existing OE ABL Web application.
3. Move any ABL .p or .r files into one of the ABL application's PROPATH locations.
Note: The PROPATH location can include the OE ABL Web application's WEB-INF/openedge directory tree.
