Where is the odata service root XML?

I'm just getting started with an odata client and this tutorial (https://templth.wordpress.com/2014/12/03/accessing-odata-v4-service-with-olingo/) has a reference to a .svc endpoint that responds with an ODATA service description expressed as XML.

 

I'm having trouble finding this in our server. Given https://www.foo.com/Act.Web.API where should I be looking? I have tried:

 

https://www.foo.com/Act.Web.API/Act.svc

- https://www.foo.com/Act.Web.API.Act.Web.API.svc/

 

And variations therein, all 404. I'm not sure how best to proceed with an ODATA client without this information.

 

Thanks,

 

James

Hi James,

 

The API isn't fully OData compliant, rather it supports OData syntax specifically for querying and batching.  The intent is to follow an established standard rather than invent there, but you currently won't get plug and play OData support with compliant tools.

 

HTH,
