    Does anyone have pointers/hints on how/if possible to achieve this without too much headache.


    1. Data source for the entire application is a rest API

    2. We want Oro GUI to interact with this API as if it was a databse

    Basically instead of a SQL database, all the data is GET/POST/PUT/DELETE etc. to this API.

    What approach would you use to talk and interact with this setup?

    For grids you have to implement your own datasource and for filters — filter adapter needs to be implemented. All CRUD operations performed in controllers, so there you can just change call of entity Manager#persist and entity Manager#flush by call of REST service.

    I think that it’s not too complicated to do.
