Using this, you can create communication arrangements to enable the consumption of the available REST Services.
  • The newly introduced scenario is similar to the "OData Services for Business Objects" scenario. This one is to consume the OData services. With the new scenario "REST Services" we have introduced a harmonized way to to create communication setup to consume the REST Services.
