I am endeavoring to gain some familiarity with what options open up with the availability of ODATA.
In particular, I am studying possibilities for performing transactional edits using ODATA.
The batch and change-set features already show a lot of promise.
There is one other feature in the ODATA spec which catches my eye as being potentially very useful/powerful:
- The If-Match header.
My understanding is that this header can be leveraged to conditionally execute a request, where the determining condition for execution is whether the target record has been modified since it was returned by a previous query.
Is anyone here aware of whether or not the ODATA API for FM has support for the If-Match header ?
I plan to test this out on my own, soon, but I just lost access to the dev Linux server that I was using to play around with ODATA, and so I may have to wait a while...
Thanks, and kind regards to all.
