REST endpoints

You can set up your Db2® system so that application programmers can create Representational State Transfer (REST) endpoints that can be used to interact with Db2.

Each endpoint is associated with a single SQL statement. Authenticated users of web, mobile, or cloud applications can use these REST endpoints from any REST HTTP client without having to install any Db2 drivers.

The Db2 REST server accepts an HTTP request, processes the request body, and returns results in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON).
