REST-enable an Oracle Database via DreamFactory API
DreamFactory Software just made it a whole lot easier for Oracle application developers to develop and deploy advanced enterprise mobile applications that connect to Oracle databases. The new feature, which is now included in the DreamFactory open source REST API platform, REST-enables Oracle databases and alleviates a major development headache for thousands of enterprises: mobilizing Oracle data quickly and securely, using standards-based technology.
DreamFactory now provides the only comprehensive, open source, auto-generated REST API for Oracle. For the first time, any Oracle-based enterprise can use DreamFactory to:
- Connect securely to Oracle 8i (and higher) and Oracle 10g (and higher) databases;
- Configure an Oracle database as a service in the DreamFactory admin console, and gain instant access to an auto-generated REST API;
"Our mission at DreamFactory is to bring agile development techniques to enterprise mobility, no matter which platform or development environment you have in mind. More than 30,000 individual developers and enterprise customers have downloaded the DreamFactory Services Platform since late last year, and we've received a lot of requests from developers for Oracle support," said Bill Appleton, president of DreamFactory Software. "Now these developers have a powerful REST services platform for building mobile apps that leverage Oracle data on the backend. We speed up software development, simplify backend integration and testing when building mobile apps, and provide a robust backend security layer for controlling access to sensitive data stored in Oracle."
