Every time you connect a new service to DreamFactory, like a remote SQL database, four important things happen:
- DreamFactory provides a REST API for the service that returns JSON and XML documents to your client application.
- The REST API is interactive in the “API / SDK” tab of the Admin Console. So you can try out http requests to your data source and see the request and response happening live.
- DreamFactory provides methods to call the REST API.
To learn a lot more about the REST API, check out the REST API docs on the Wiki.
Also, make sure you read this important information about your API key and passing a session ID into your API calls before you start coding!
