About JayStack OData V4 Server (odata-v4-server)

With JayStack OData v4 Server you can build your own data endpoints without the hassle of implementing any protocol-level code. This framework binds OData v4 requests to your annotated controller functions, and compiles OData v4 compatible response. Clients can access services through OData-compliant HTTP requests. We recommend the JayData library for consuming OData v4 APIs.
