Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (ODATA-149) Self-link for rleated and inlined feeds

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-149?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=31514#action_31514 ] 

Michael Pizzo commented on ODATA-149:

The syntax of the URL should be up to the service, but we should define the *semantics* of the URL.

In the case of $expand, it does seem like the inline result is specifically the collection of related entities and should be relative to the parent (i.e., ~/Customers(1)/Orders). To add to the collection of related entities you would post to this url.

I can see the argument for making ~/Customers(1)/Orders consistent, although I could also see just saying that the result is a collection of entities from the root entityset (Orders) that just happen to all be related to the same entity (Customers(1)), in the same way ~/Orders?$filter=Customer/CustId eq 1 would return ~/Orders for the self link of the feed.

>             Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: OData ATOM Format v1.0
>    Affects Versions: WD01
>         Environment: [Proposed]
>            Reporter: Ralf Handl
>             Fix For: WD01
> Section 5.2.4 states: A self link is represented as an atom:link with a rel attribute of "self" and an href that can be used to retrieve the feed from which the current entries are taken. 
> Which feed is meant in the case of related or inlined content, e.g.
>    GET ~/Customers(1)/Orders
>    GET ~/Customers(1)?$expand=Orders
> Should the self-link be ~/Orders or rather ~/Customers(1)/Orders? It should be the same for both request types.
