Subject [jira] [Created] (ATLAS-1101) A less chatty REST API style required for UIs
Date Fri, 05 Aug 2016 16:37:20 GMT
David Radley created ATLAS-1101:

             Summary: A less chatty REST API style required for UIs
                 Key: ATLAS-1101
             Project: Atlas
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: David Radley

The current style of the REST API has references everywhere there can be. I think that when
we use this style of REST API we would need to constantly issue more RESt calls to find the
referred to object.

For UIs a less chatty style of Rest API would be easier to use and more performant. I suggest
having subobjects included in the responses rather than the reference (href) . I think we
would need a paging capability to ensure that we do not get swamped with lots of data.
