Talend ESB as OData Producer

I am using the sample Project "DemoRESTRoute" which uses java bean for creating Rest - Response. As far as I understand it, it must be possible to create a similar bean using olingo or something similar and expose it via rest to create an odata service. Has anybody done this, or can help me with sample code? best regards-

Hi Stepro,
You're able to find the source code for Talend ESB products from https://www.talendforge.org/sources/index.php.
Is it what you are looking for?
Best regards

Re: Talend ESB as OData Producer

We have not tried yet. We had a few requests though for OData recently. What is your integration scenario? Do you want to integrate with SalesForce?
Thanks

Hi,
is there any update regarding OData Support in Talend? I want to be able to use talend flows as odata source, not to call odata from talend. Best Regards.

We are working on a SAP marketing application which expose their data through OData, wondering if Talend actually will support it in nearly future.

Re: Talend ESB as OData Producer

Here is my use case of oData:
From Salesforce we want to read external data stored in SQL Server database. The Account is stored in Salesforce, the meter reads, invoices, payments etc. are stored in SQL Server, there is way too much data to even try bringing them into Salesforce. Salesforce has a feature "Salesforce connect" (i.e. oData) that allows Salesforce to read external data exposed as oData by creating external objects corresponding to the SQL Server table/views. But we still need a mechanism to expose the SQL Server data as oData . In order to deliver SQL Server data to Salesforce as an oData provider, a "middleware" is required. 
We have successfully tried Microsoft Visual Studio entity framework to expose the tables/views as oData, and also successfully tried Informatica Cloud Realtime to expose tables as oData to Salesforce, each with their pros/cons. I would like to see the oData feature in Talend so it can act as the "middleware".

George
