Subject Re: REST API for AMQP management?
Date Fri, 29 Aug 2014 21:09:50 GMT
Can you give an example of how you would create / read / update / delete a
named object of a given type through this API.

Are you using the name or the identity field as the identifier to generate
the URI for the "resource" being described?
