This page describes the use cases, requirements and draft specification for extension to the REST specification for RegRep4:
THe proposal is needed to address the following limitations in current REST spoec defined in ebRS 4.0:
There is no support for Create/Update/Delete of RegistryObjects
There is no machine processable WADL decsription for the REST interface
- There documentation for the REST interface can be more consistent and structured using automation techniques
Provide the following as specification:
A WADL decsription for the REST interface with extended doc elements to describe request params and details of request and response representations, status codes etc.This description may be used to automatically generate client stubs and server skeletons for implementing the REST interface.
- An HTML web page generated from WADL description that provides a consistent structured documentation of the REST interface for human consumption
REST interface includes existing methods defined in ebRS as well as new methods to add support for Create/Update/Delete of RegistryObjects
- Should the publishEventToEventBus() method be included in standard.
