QikBuy is a small retail shop that is planning to open a new website and mobile app for advertising their products.
It hopes to establish a RESTful API for product display and search which can be shared between the site and the app,
and can be maintained independently. As it is not planning to allow purchasing of products via the API yet,
it needs only a read-only JSON API that can be implemented very quickly, as the project deadline is approaching.
The JSON Data Service
processing element is specialized for scenarios like the one described above, and can be set up with
minimal effort. Each required API endpoint can be set up simply by specifying a new
URL-to-SQL qurery mappings on the element configuration.
