Flexible data retrieval

In the construction of the Reeleezee API, we followed the OData v4 specifications. Open Data Protocol (OData) is a RESTful data access protocol initially defined by Microsoft. The protocol enables the creation and consumption of REST API’s which allow resources, identified using URL’s and defined in a data model, to be published and edited by Web clients using simple HTTP messages.
