Here is my example. I have a basic rest api for a Member. Simple CRUD. Project manager says "we need an endpoint that will return the remaining pension amount for that member.
I get this stuff a lot where they want a very specific piece of information about an object.I don't want to include this in the Read request as the calculation can be time consuming. So, how do I do this in a RESTful way??
You could create a new endpoint called
Pension, which could have a
RemainingAmount property (and probably a
RemainingCurrencyIso one, too), and expose that through a link from the
Member resource like so:
