I was privileged to represent Red Hat on the OASIS OData Technical Committee. Thanks to the tireless efforts of committee members from Microsoft, SAP and others, the end result is a powerful and flexible specification that will revolutionize REST services. There is much more work to do as the committee turns its focus to v4.1 and v5, but now is a good time to reflect on the awesome job done by the group!
You bet! We are excited to add the capabilities of the v4 spec into our tooling and Data Virtualization engine. There are two open source projects put forward by SAP which we plan to contribute to and support. Apache Olingo and Eclipse Ogee will fit nicely within our projects and Eclipse tooling.

Are you or your company interested in shaping the next version of OData? You are more than welcome to join the committee and help us make a great spec even greater!
