Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Created: (ODATA-263) Remove $select=*

Remove $select=*

                 Key: ODATA-263
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-263
             Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC
          Issue Type: Improvement
         Environment: [Proposed]
            Reporter: Ralf Handl

The URL conventions state that 

    If the selectItem is a star, then all properties and navigation properties on the matching resources MUST be returned.

This conflicts with the JSON format which by default does not return navigation properties and only includes them when odata.metadata=full is requested.

The recent enhancements to $expand which allows nesting e.g. a $select further reduces the need for $select=*, so it's best to remove it altogether.
