12:09 dorei hello
12:09 trygvis hi
12:10 dorei let's say i have a movie object and it can be associated with one or more genre objects how do i do that in a restful way? post the movie and then what? let's assume that the genre objects already exist
12:19 pdurbin dorei: reminds me a bit of posting something that has multiple contact email addresses: https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse/blob/v4.2/scripts/api/data/dv-root.json
12:27 trygvis dorei: the genre can exist on its own so it would have a URI. in the movie you can have a list of genre URIs
12:28 dorei something like POST the movie to /genres/10/movies and /genres/25/movies ?
12:31 trygvis the path that is posted to is not significant
12:32 dorei okie
12:32 dorei should i post the whole movie object when adding to genres or only its id?
12:33 trygvis when you're updating a resource with PUT you should send the full object
12:33 trygvis if you use PATCH you can send parts
12:34 dorei okie
12:35 dorei but wouldnt that involve an extra lookup on the server side (in the case of PUT) ? i mean the server will have to look up the PUTed object and check whether it exists in the db, no?
12:36 trygvis more than what?
12:37 dorei i guess you're right, even if i use only the id, the server should do the same checks
