Subject RE: [REQUEST FOR MENTORS] Request for mentors to help bring MetaModel into ASF incubator
Date Thu, 11 Apr 2013 07:21:38 GMT
Hi Ross,

I think MetaModel could potentially have an oData module as well, making it possible to use
an oData source just like any other data source. I think the main difference between oData
and MetaModel, if you look at it from a helicopter view, is that oData attempts to standardize
the server side of things by building a uniform protocol. MetaModel attempts to standardize
the client side of things, by having a common abstraction layer. Thus, MetaModel does not
have any specific protocol, just an API. There's pros and cons of that of course, but in deed
both client side and server side standardization is attractive to have. So a MetaModel-oData
module would be cool, making it possible to work with your sharepoint or netflix systems,
just like you would work with your JDBC database or CSV file :)

MetaModel looks to overlap somewhat with the oData initiative [1]. Is a relationship worth
