The Web API Bridge is an HTTP service
that automatically translates Web API requests
into calls to MySQL SQL Stored Procedures,
and then returns the result set in JSON or CSV.
The Web API Bridge is currently implemented in PHP and is expected to run atop of Apache 2.
The Web API Bridge has no local configuration except when a remote MySQL server is used the connection should be secured using x509 certificates. The domain of the URL requested is used to perform a text entry DNS-lookup that returns the database name and IP addresses associated with the target MySQL server. If no record is found, the database is assumed to be available on the localhost, and the database name is determined from the domain name. The target MySQL server need only allow the EXECUTE priviledge to the Web API Bridge.
