Introducing OpenEdge REST : Tasks : Building a REST Web application

Building a REST Web application

To expose an ABL class or procedure file as a REST service, follow these steps:
1. Create an OpenEdge REST project using the New OpenEdge Project wizard.
2. Annotate ABL procedure and class files with REST interface annotations using the Define Service Interface wizard.
3. Create REST service using the New REST Service wizard.
Note: If you select to create a default REST service when creating the REST project, you can skip this step.
4. Map REST resource verbs and parameters using the REST Expose Editor.
5. Package as a REST Web application WAR file using the Export REST Application wizard.
6. Deploy REST services to the Apache Tomcat Java container using the Publish option.
