Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (ODATA-248) Define required/optional format(s) for OData

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-248?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=32358#action_32358 ] 

Hubert Heijkers commented on ODATA-248:

I'm fine with not requiring any specific format and adding the "SHOULD suport JSON..." but how would a client find out which formats are supported? Are we, or should we, advertising the supported formats?

>                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-248
>             Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: OData Protocol v1.0
>    Affects Versions: WD01
>            Reporter: Michael Pizzo
>             Fix For: WD01
> We need to define what format(s), if any, are required for a service to be OData "Conformant", and which are optional.
> For example, we could say that JSON is required, and ATOM is optional, meaning a service that supported only ATOM would not be conformant. This would help clients but might prevent some services from being compliant. Also, if we added another format (say, RDF), it would prevent a service from implementing just RDF and claiming conformance.
> We could, fore example, say that a service SHOULD support JSON for maximum interoperability, but not make it required. Or perhaps we can define levels of conformance.
