23:42 Starcraftmazter hi
23:42 Starcraftmazter if i want to make an endpoint to verify that a country name is valid, what should it look like?
23:42 Starcraftmazter should it be like a get to /countries/{name} which returns either a 200 or 404 or some other error code
23:42 scflode joined #rest
23:42 Starcraftmazter or should it be a post that sends the country in a json and gets a code or the country back?
23:42 Starcraftmazter or what
23:44 whartung what does "valid" mean.
23:46 Starcraftmazter whartung: if its a real country or not
23:47 Starcraftmazter the business logic of that is irrelevant, the question essentially is, given a single string input and a boolean return value, how do you best represent that with an API
23:47 whartung well, see, if you do a get /coutries/panama, will you get anything? or just "true" Is Panama really a first class resource that you're managing?
