Re: [ecf-dev] rest API work

Hash: SHA1

Hi Scott, Hi Holger

I'm currently catching up with the latest incarnation of the ECF REST
API. I noticed that you removed the possibility to include request
entities that was present in the former version (parameter's gone in the
RestCall and RestCallFactory).
IMHO request entites are quite common to post calls. How do you suggest
to deal with them? Subclass the factory?

Greetings + Thanks
