REST and the NDG Vocab Server

A place to put issues associated with our API for the vocab server.

It's probably best to confess a priori that we haven't the time and effort available to do a perfect RESTful job. That might be done by moving over to atom and atomPub to control the vocabs, or some other technology. Meanwhile, we do what we do, and we log it here.

What is REST?

Bryan's  collection of restful bookmarks!

Nifty quotes:

  1. Query results are represented by a list of links with summary information, not by arrays of object representations (query is not a substitute for identification of resources) ( Fielding)

Issues with current development plans

  1. We break nearly every one of Roy Fielding's  rules!
  2. I'm worried about the PUT/POST on the same URL for lists.
