CTS2F2 — Create/Update in WADL use the wrong HTTP methods

  • Key: CTS2F2-65
  • Legacy Issue Number: 17323
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Mayo Clinic ( Mr. Craig Stancl)
  • Summary:

    In the WADL (REST PSM), a Create is done with an HTTP 'PUT' and an update is done with an HTTP 'POST'. This is problematic because a client must have knowledge of the URL structure before doing a create. It will limit implementation as-is because clients cannot be expected to know the URL structure of a resource before it is created. In the case of an update, a 'PUT' is more appropriate because we assume that at that point the client does know the URL of the resource.
