Subject [jira] [Commented] (FALCON-184) Select default content-type for API responses and update docs
Date Wed, 13 Nov 2013 09:31:36 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FALCON-184?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13821112#comment-13821112

Srimanth Gunturi commented on FALCON-184:

So {{/api/entities/\*}} will default to JSON, but also provide XML. {{/api/instance/\*}} will
only provide JSON.

Question is with regards to {{/api/entities/definition/\[type\]/\[entity\]}} - we want just
that one to emit XML only?
Also, what about POSTs, where input is expected to be XML, but response will be JSON? It is
generally the case that request and response be of the same content-type.

> Wiki documentation shows output in JSON. However it does not mention that a request header
of {{Accept: application/json}} is required to output JSON content.
> Either we make JSON the default output in API thereby not requiring an {{Accept}} header.
Or we document the header.
