The DreamFactory Services Platform (DSP) supports adding any number of services to each DSP instance. These services are then accessible from the REST API that's built in to every DSP. Often these services are either a database or file storage but there's another service type called 'Remote Web Service'. This could be any service that has a REST API supporting JSON or XML document exchange. See this blog post for an overview of how remote web services are configured and called.

Talking to developers over the last few months, one of the most common requests we received was to support Oracle as one of our native database types. We've just released version 1.8.0 of our DreamFactory Services Platform (DSP) which does exactly that. With some simple configuration you can create a service on the DSP for your Oracle database and access it via our REST API, either from your app or from the API Docs in the DSP admin console. By adding Oracle as a service on your DSP, you can easily control which users and apps have access to the database and what level of access they should have.

Many people need an app just to perform CRUD on data. Usually they resort to using one of the many Grid or Table plugins that exist such as JTables or ngGrid. I’ve found that while these are valid solutions they generally lack the ability to enforce business rules on data entry, sometimes require additional plugins, and/or require specific formatting of data to populate the UI. The dfTable component for AngularJS attempts to be an easy to implement solution that plugs right into your AngularJS app and can work with your data right out of the box.
