restSQL can be deployed as a Docker container in 10 minutes. See the Docker Hub restsql/service-sdk for more detail. It can be paired with a MySQL sample database container at restsql/mysql-sakila.

restSQL is an open-source, ultra-lightweight data access layer for browser, mobile, desktop or server-based applications. For many applications, conventional ORM is heavyweight and inflexible, and conventional Web Services (WSDL/SOAP) are cumbersome. restSQL substantially lightens the middle-tier. It is targeted at the 80% of data access that is basic CRUD (Create-Read-Update-Delete), making it faster and simpler to develop distributed applications.

restSQL is not an object-oriented view of the database. It presents flat or hierarchical "views" of relational database tables. These views are query-able and updatable through a simple REST-based HTTP or Java API. The HTTP interface is based on REST principles, which use HTTPT's built-in features, rather than abstracting away from them.

Version 0.8.9 of restSQL, an open-source persistence framework, was released on Sept 28, 2014. The release adds adds binary object support with base 64 encoding for JSON and XML, and improves security with protection against SQL injection. See the Release Notes for more detail.

See http://restsql.org for an overview, developer documentation and binary distributions of the framework and the SDK. The source code is licensed under MIT and hosted on github.

Version 0.8 of restSQL, an open-source persistence framework, was released on July 19, 2012. The release enables JSON encoding for an HTTP API request and response entity (body). restSQL previously only supported XML encoding. See Media Types for an overview. The release also enables SQL functions in resource columns (MySQL only).

Version 0.7.3 of restSQL, an open-source persistence framework, was released on January 16, 2012. The release adds adds unlimited SQL Resource table extensions. SQL Resources in previous releases were constrained to a maximum of one parent and one child extension. 0.7.3 enables an SQL Resource to join an abitrary number of tables to create a flat or hierarchical application-specific view.

Version 0.7 of restSQL, an open-source persistence framework, was released on September 15, 2011. The release adds resource authorization capability, ensuring users only access the SQL Resources and methods appropriate to their assigned role(s). It uses standard HTTP Basic or Digest authentication and standard JEE web app declarative security mechanisms. Credentials and role assignments are provided by a standard Realm plugin, which could be file-, RDBMS- or LDAP-based. Role to SQL Resource and request type assignments are provided via a simple configuration file.

Version 0.6 of restSQL, an open-source persistence framework, was released on July 15. The release extends database interoperability from MySQL to PostgreSQL. It also includes extension mechanisms to easily develop support for other database engines. The release additionally was tested with multiple application servers to ensure interoperability with any standard JEE container.
