CRUD Operations in Odata – Part V – Read Operation(Single & Multiple Records)

OData protocol defines conventions for all of these CRUD operations or CRUD-Q (“Q” is for query) .


The Create operation is used whenever you want to create data on the backend server.The related HTTP method is POST. If the Create operation is successful, you receive the HTTP 201 (created) response code, along with the entity that was created.


The Read operation is the most frequently used operation.

The related HTTP method for the Read operation is GET. A successful Read operation has the HTTP 200 (OK) status code.


The Update operation is used whenever you want to change an existing entity. The HTTP method for the Update operation is PUT. If the Update operation is successful, you receive the  HTTP 204 (no content) status

[penci_blockquote style=”style-3″ align=”none” author=””]Instead of PUT, it’s possible to leverage the PATCH operation that allows you to perform a partial update. The PATCH method is supported by the framework and first calls the GETDETAIL method to retrieve all properties that won’t be updated, then merges those values with the ones that are sent via the PATCH request, and finally performs an update using the standard update method of an entity set.[/penci_blockquote]


Finally, the Delete operation is used whenever you want to delete an entity. Equal to the Update operation, you have to provide the primary key of the entity you want to erase.  The related HTTP method is DELETE.
A successful Delete operation has the  HTTP 204 (no content) status code.

Via the sap:deletable annotation, you can specify whether entities of
an entity set can be deleted or not.
