I am evaluating the dhtmlx v. 6, and I’m really struggling to find documentation for the RESTful data access methodology.
I understand REST very well. I’ve written countless web services implementing RESTful interfaces, and code to consume other people’s RESTful webservices.
But I don’t really see anywhere any description of the RESTful data structures that will be required for each of the data-aware UI widgets. For example, the Grid has to support sorting, paging, filtering, etc., and all those features will require passing structures to and from the REST data source.
It’s not enough to just say “all the UI widgets use REST to read and write data.” There needs to be specific documentation so that I can write the matching RESTful web service to serve up the data.
Can you point me to such documentation?
Really, I’m not even sure how to bind the proper url to the widget, or what methods are called to save and fetch data.
