Lately, I got a request to build a REST POST sample using an ADF REST DataControl. Well, here we go.
First of all, we need a REST API which allows us to create data as this will be translated to REST POST call. I deliberately don’t want to use an ADF based REST service as there are samples available for this.
Looking for free REST API services which allow creating data I found “reqres’ (http://reqres.in), a free ‘hosted REST-API ready to respond to your AJAX requests’. This service can be used to test REST calls using any verb you like. It promises to be online 24/7.
Let’s start by creating a new ADF Web Application. If we would only test the REST service we could have created a custom application, but I want to show the viewController part too, so the ADF Web Application is just fine.
I don’t show how to do this here as you can see it done here ‘Why and how to write reproducible test cases’
As we don’t use the ADFModel project you can delete this empty project if you like. After creating the initial workspace, we create a new project from the gallery as a ‘Custom Project’. Read the complete article here.
