Although the talk was helpful in understanding REST and the way HTTP requests work and should be interpreted, the information given was misleading. Currently, Doctrine's IBM DB2 driver is community driven and not fully complete. For example, the doModifyLimitQuery() function does not pass the ORDER BY statement to the OVER() function in the SQL. This means that the pagination cannot be ordered (see https://github.com/doctrine/dbal/pull/839 for more information). There is even a comment in the source code describing the issue.

It is important to understand that the DB Connect and Doctrine Connect functionality is still experimental and should be used with caution and understanding for the underlying functionality. I feel like some are going to go home and try Apigility on their boxes and find out that it doesn't work the way described, or at least not as easily as portrayed. This may lead them to giving up on Apigility as a solution. Please keep this information in mind, because Apigility is a wonderful tool and can help abstract the DB2 database and make it more accessible to modern techniques.
