Oracle REST Data Services enables users to turn their Oracle database into modern RESTful API Services. This course will teach you to install ORDS, AutoREST enabled database objects, create custom REST services, secure and deploy them on app servers.
REST access to your table data for the CRUD operations is a common need for most web applications. In this course, Oracle REST Data Services, you will learn about this powerful tool that enables users to turn their Oracle databases into highly scalable and secure, enterprise-grade RESTful API Services. ORDS enables REST access to your Oracle database tables, views, and program units with literally no coding. You can easily create more complex, enterprise grade custom REST services, using just your SQL and PL/SQL skills. First, you will start off learning how to install and configure ORDS. Next, you will see how to enable database objects for REST access, as well as create custom REST services. Finally, you will learn how to secure your REST services and deploy them on standard application servers. By the end of this course, you will gain a solid foundation to get started with ORDS, which will enable you to create RESTful services rapidly against your Oracle Database. What you learn will go a long way in easing your development efforts and adoption to the cloud native apps and the micro services architecture.
Course Overview Hello everyone. My name is Pankaj Jain, and I'm very excited to welcome you to my course, Oracle REST Data Services. RESTful web services are a critical component for the microservices architecture and the cloud native apps. Oracle REST data services is a mid-tier Java application, which enables accessing our database resources via modern Enterprise class REST interfaces. With just a few clicks, using Oracle SQL Developer you can enable your database tables and views and program unit for REST access. Database developers can use their familiar SQL and PL/SQL skills to develop these powerful REST services with no Java programming knowledge required. This course will be useful to both the database developers and application developers, as well as the web admins. You only need a basic understanding of the Oracle database objects and SQL and PL/SQL skills to get started. Some of the major concepts we will cover include, installing and configuring Oracle REST data services, enabling Oracle database tables, as well as program units, like procedures, functions, and packages for REST access, writing custom, powerful REST services using just SQL and PL/SQL, understanding how to secure your REST resources using first-party authentication, as well as OAuth 2. 0 authorization framework for third-party access, deploying Oracle REST data services on standard application servers. By the end of this course you will have a solid foundation to get started and be productive with Oracle rest data services. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn about this wonderful tool with the Oracle REST Data Services course at Pluralsight.
