[HELP] Create custom FeatureLayer?

We are considering using ArcGIS JavaScript in our Windows 8.1 modern application.

The main scenario is simple: just display some "data layers" on the map.

Seems like FeatureLayer can fulfill our requirements. We did try CSVLayer and it worked.


However, our data source is a Web Service that returns JSON (an OData service) so CSV is not a convenient format for us.

So naturally the questions are...

1. What is alternative for our scenario? I see there are only CSV/StreamLayer, but we need to consume JSON.

2. Do we need to create our custom FeatureLayer (in our case, probably ODataJSONLayer) ?

2. Is there any tutorial, sample or learning material regarding to create a custom FeatureLayer?

3. Does it require "big" effort to do so or it is a relatively easy task?
