Subject [jira] [Commented] (FALCON-1209) Hide low level REST APIs for graph db from users
Date Mon, 11 May 2015 13:37:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FALCON-1209?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14537937#comment-14537937

Ajay Yadava commented on FALCON-1209:

To provide some more clarification on this JIRA, I am aware that this API was exposed for
enabling Rexster, the biggest advantage of which is to expose Graph over REST api. I thought
since Falcon already exposes useful REST API it is not of much value. Users would want to
query in terms of entities / instances  rather than in terms of vertices/ edges.

Another thought behind this was that exposing this API to users ties us to a graph db.

However on second thoughts, I think it might be useful for some people to do traversals or
ad hoc scripts/queries in a language independent fashion. Might be useful for debugging/ad
hoc cases for administrators. Thoughts?

> Falcon Currently exposes several low level rest api for graph db to users e.g. you can
query for a particular vertex id. Since ids are numerical, it doesn't make sense to expose
these API to users. 
> These API are useful for building more meaningful features for users / administrators
but they are themselves not useful for users. Having these low level API adds more verbosity
to the API without providing any useful features for the external users.  
> I intend to remove exposure of these API as REST endpoints but keep the code.
