Issue: To be popular with hobby developers and generate buzz we need libraries on popular platforms. Issue: Is everything in REST-EZ required? i.e., expand? what filter functionality is required? Should we define a simplified subset of the expression language? Should identify "levels" according to use cases Rather than "levels" could even consider (possibly overlapping) scenario-based "feature sets"
Mike: Relationship of REST-EZ to OpenAPI:
REST-EZ and OpenAPI OpenAPI is an extremely popular specification for documenting a REST API. Because REST-EZ APIs are REST APIs, it is natural and encouraged for REST-EZ services to support OpenAPI. As the REST-EZ service description defines a superset of what a service might want to document through OpenAPI, a suggested translation is defined for translating a REST-EZ service description to OpenAPI. Here is a link to the Microsoft library for converting OData CSDL->OpenAPI, which is currently in beta: https://www.nuget.org/packages/Microsoft.OpenApi.OData/1.0.0-beta4 We are working on updating this library with additional patterns and plan to open source the code.
Ralf: ODATA-1207 is OPEN
Ralf: Check whether known libraries rely on either getting an @id or all key fields
