The REST API provides driverless access to your HCL OneDB™ data.

With the REST API, you can run queries as well as insert, update, and delete operations against JSON collections, traditional relational tables, and time series data. The REST API uses MongoDB syntax and returns as results as JSON documents.

To use the REST API, define the wire listener type to rest in the wire listener configuration file.

This graphic depicts the MongoDB and REST clients that connect to the HCL OneDB server through the wire listener.
