Question about RESTful ORM Server

The example entiled 'Simple RESTful ORM Server' included with 'mORMot' is a console application.

Would a 'real' ReSTful ORM server be a service instead (on a Windows server)?

Yes of course.

Please check sample "10 - Background Http service".

Re: Question about RESTful ORM Server

No real need for that for examples, for real applications you are just few steps away from real Windows Service.
The most simplistic approach to show and test some functionality is to do console applications, which do not have GUI overhead.
Console application is the most "natural" way to code and test prototype which could be later "wrapped as real" Windows Service.
You can even leave them as that and run them from Windows scheduler...

@Leander007
Yes, console + verbose log are the "natural" way to test server side.
But of course, it may be quite a shift / switch from RAD UI background.

First let it work as console.
Then publish it as service.
Here are the golden rules. smile
