The DataNucleus REST API provides a RESTful interface to persist JSON objects to the datastore. All entities are accessed, queried and stored as resources via well defined HTTP methods. This API consists of a servlet that internally handles the persistence of objects (using JDO). Your POJO classes need to be accessible from this servlet, and can use either JDO or JPA metadata (annotations or XML).


The REST API automatically exposes the persistent class in RESTful style, and requires minimum configuration as detailed in the sections linked below.
