Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Created: (CMIS-16) Create / Move ambiguity in REST/AtomPub

Create / Move ambiguity  in REST/AtomPub

                 Key: CMIS-16
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/CMIS-16
             Project: OASIS Content Management Interoperability Services TC
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: REST/AtomPub Binding
    Affects Versions: Draft 0.50
            Reporter: Ethan Gur-esh
            Assignee: Al Brown
            Priority: Minor

It's not clear how to distinguish between a "create" and "move" when posting an entry to a collection. There's mention of the CMIS-removeFrom header/arg which could be used to distinguish (an approach I personally dislike), but this arg is optional anyway.

An intended move on an object that does not exist results in a create. Another option is to use PUT to change the parent folder id. Although this would require other changes to the spec to support parent id on docs as well as the fact the parent id is read only.
