post/put a record to odata service

Hi experts,

I have created an oData service for which the entity set is set to updateable and createable and also the create and update methods in DPC_EXT.

Now in GW client , i am getting a record using filter option and using this response as payload to create/update a record in my odata service. But the operation is failing saying "System expected the element '{}entry'".

I have also added HTTP header to accept application/xml.

    For a create or update operation you have to use a single item, an entry, as the payload.

    So you would have to look at the structure of the response of

    GET …/<OData_srv>/MyEntitySet('<key-field'>).

    For a Create request you have to perform a POST on …/<OData_srv>/MyEntitySet

    For an Updata request you have to perform a PUT on .../<OData_srv>/MyEntitySet('<key-field'>)

    See my following blog how to get such a response.
