The REST MVC Web Services API was designed to address limitations with the Legacy REST API. The REST MVC framework uses existing droplets, form handlers and components, creating an API that can be extended easily. You can build REST services in a modular format by combining model producers. URLs are explicitly defined in a registry, making access to REST URLs secure. Using access controllers defined in your applications, you can restrict who or under what conditions REST URLs can be accessed. All properties that are used in REST calls can be filtered, which reduces the amount of information that must be transferred.

This section describes the Model View Controller (MVC) architecture and framework in detail, and provides examples of possible customizations. It contains the following information:

  • Installing and Configuring the REST MVC Server provides information on installing the REST server using CIM, and configuring various components, such as debugging and enabling desired services

  • The REST MVC Definition Framework describes the architecture of the REST MVC API, including the file definitions and components that make up the framework. This section also has instructions on creating a new REST service

  • External REST MVC Service Call Examples provides detailed information on existing customer-facing REST service calls, with examples and component configuration information

  • Internal REST MVC Service Call Examples provides detailed information on existing internal, or agent-facing REST service calls. This section is intended for users of Oracle ATG Web Commerce Service Center to REST services for call center agents
