Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (ODATA-159) Handling inline attachments in requests/responses

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-159?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=31599#action_31599 ] 

Anila Kumar GVN commented on ODATA-159:

Thanks for your quick response Ralf.

The problem with going with existing batch processing semantics is that as per the spec, 'Nth' part of a multipart request corresponds to the payload of 'Nth' operation in the batch request which is not true in this case. Nth operation may have payloads based on Nth, N+1th or more.. based on no. of attachments to that operation.

It looks like a misuse of existing batch processing semantics and what we are looking for is a standard way which doesn't break the spec and still respond to a request with attachments as part of the response itself rather than just media links. 

Does this align with design principles of OData?

> The only way of dealing with attachments (streams) as per the current OData spec seems to be using Media Entities or Named Stream Properties, where a media link is provided to download the attachment. Is there a way to get properties and attachments in one call?
