MySQL Server example for JayStack OData V4 Server

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.

This example uses JayStack OData V4 Server (odata-v4-server) and odata-v4-mysql repositories.

Technical details of this example

Setting up the database

You have to create the database manually using these commands in server.ts:

USE northwind;

Setting up the connection to your MySQL Server

You have to customize the db connection options by editing connect.ts. By default, these are the options:

const config = {
    host: "localhost",
    user: "root",
    password: "mysql"

By default, the server will listen on port 3306 therefore it is not set above.

Building the application

npm run build

Testing the application

npm test

Starting the application

npm start

Creating sample data

After starting the application (it will listen on localhost:3000 by default) you can generate / recreate the sample dataset by submitting localhost:3000/initDb. Alternatively if you start unit tests (npm test) then the database will be initialized automatically.
