WebAPI to store and retrieve from database


Our other custom android, iOS and Web applications use WebAPI to store and retrive data from DB. So we thought why not this approach can also be extended to Ignition Applications as well. Since this is something new approach for us and we have very much practiced to Ignitions DB Connections which was a easy approach.

So Just wanted to know from any of your experience,

  1. How efficient this method of using WebAPI for DB functionalities.
  2. Will there be any challenges?
  3. Is it futuristic Idea?
  4. If so, Can we have this inside Ignition using Web Dev / Sepasoft Web Services Module or if there are any other methods ?

Expecting your thoughts.
Thanks and Regards,
