Subject [jira] [Created] (ZEST-95) Entity = Identity + Value
Date Sun, 12 Jul 2015 08:35:04 GMT
Niclas Hedhman created ZEST-95:

             Summary: Entity = Identity + Value
                 Key: ZEST-95
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZEST-95
             Project: Zest
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Niclas Hedhman
             Fix For: 3.0

By viewing an Entity as a composite of an Immutable Identity and a single Value, we end up
with easier transactional semantics, and a generic "Merge" facility could be created.
For Entities with a lot of properties, where only a small number change each time, we would
recommend that the static part and the dynamic part are implemented as two sub-entities, or
a main entity with all static bits and a sub-entity with the changing data.
