Expose Data as Web Services or REST Resources

Agile Development Approach

  • Declarative programming model for defining services and resources.
  • XML based DSL with no Java code to be written.

Federation Support

  • Combine data from multiple data sources in a single response or resource.
  • Support for nested queries across data sources.

RESTful Data Access

  • Create collections of REST resources for CRUD operations.
  • Support for both JSON and XML media types.
  • Secure resources with HTTP(S) Basic Auth integrated to enterprise identity systems (via WSO2 Identity Server).

Secured and Managed Data Access

  • Authentication, authorization, confidentiality, integrity and encryption with HTTP(S) Basic Auth, WS-Security, WS-Trust, WS-SecureConversation, WS-Policy, WS-PolicyAttachment and WS-SecurityPolicy.
  • Fine-grained authorization with XACML (via integration to WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus).
  • Flexible throttling for access frequency, source IP and more via policies.
  • Convenient WS-SecurityPolicy configuration for common security patterns.
  • Comprehensive user management including LDAP via integration to WSO2 Identity Server.

Transactional Data Access and Services

  • Distributed transactions via JMS.
  • Transactions spanning different data sources.

Data Transformation and Validation

  • Transform via XSLT and XQuery.
  • Built-in validators for standard data types.
  • Customizable validators via Java extensions.
  • Schema validation via integration with WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus.

High Performance, High Availability, Scalability and Stability

  • 100% streaming for large data volumes.
  • Extremely low latency for data access.
  • Distributed response caching for minimizing database access.
  • Supports highly available deployment.
  • Horizontal scaling via clustering with stateless server architecture.
  • Long term execution stability with low resource utilization.
Lightweight, Developer-Friendly and Easy-to-Deploy
  • GUI, command-line and IDE-based tools for artifact generation, development and testing.
  • Integrated to WSO2 Developer Studio, the Eclipse-based IDE.
  • Tool for automatic generation of CRUD operations/resources against existing database schemas.
  • Flexible mapping of query responses to custom XML data formats.
  • Easy to debug services with tools for message tracing and interactive testing with TryIt capabilities.
  • Automatic generation of WSDLs for services and service stubs.
  • Real-life samples explained.
  • User-friendly management console.
  • Extremely simple security management.
  • Server customization via point-and-click feature installation.
  • Choice of deployment to on-premise servers, private or public cloud.
  • Integrated with SVN, Maven, Ant and other standard tools.

Manage and Monitor

  • Comprehensive management and monitoring through Web console with enterprise-level security.
  • Built-in collection and monitoring of standard access and performance statistics.
  • JMX MBeans for key metrics monitoring and management.
  • Integrates with WSO2 Business Activity Monitor for operational audit and KPI monitoring and management.
  • Flexible logging support with integration to enterprise logging systems.
  • Centralized configuration management across different environments with lifecycles and versioning via integration to WSO2 Governance Registry
