Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (ODATA-827) introduce $compute query option

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/ODATA-827?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=61323#comment-61323 ] 

Michael Pizzo commented on ODATA-827:

How would this work if I wanted to include the results of a bound function call? Would I do something like:

GET ~Products?$compute=ns.RecentSalesByManager(Manager='Bob') as recentSales&$select=*,recentSales

If so, does this give us an alternate syntax for expand?

GET ~Customers?$compute=Orders as salesOrders&$select=*,salesOrders

I'd rather not introduce another way to do $expand. Should we use $expand for any time we want to extend the members of the entity (versus arbitrary transformations in $apply)?  For example, we could "create" dynamic properties in $expand by naming a property that didn't already exist and using $compute as:
or as an expand option:
    $expand=$compute(expression as newProperty(expandoptions),expression2 as newProperty2(expandoptions))

>             Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: OData Protocol, OData URL Conventions
>    Affects Versions: V4.0_WD01
>         Environment: New Query Capabilities
>            Reporter: Andrew Eisenberg
>              Labels: GoodIdea, Usability
>             Fix For: V4.01_WD01
> OData could be extended to allow derived computed values to be returned along with the properties of an entity.
> This could be expressed as:
> http://odata.netflix.com/v2/Catalog/Titles?$compute=substring(ShortSynopsis,20) as Summary&$select=Name,Summary
> In ODATA-9 we added support for an equivalent compute transformation in our Data Aggregation Extensions.
