Subject [jira] [Commented] (QPID-7773) REST API queries that identify a single object by its full path should return a object rather than a list.
Date Wed, 20 Sep 2017 15:53:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-7773?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16173385#comment-16173385

Lorenz Quack commented on QPID-7773:

I agree with the approach laid out in [Keith's first comment|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-7773?focusedCommentId=16107142&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-16107142]
with the following addition (which is currently implemented)
bq. if a URL uniquely does not identify a single object e.g /queue or /virtualhost/myvhn,
a list must result *unless the specified parent hierarchy (in the second example "myvhn")
itself cannot be found in which case 404 should be returned*
Unfortunately, the third point 
bq. if a URL uniquely identifies a single object is qualified by a filter e..g. /queue/vhn/vh/myqueue?type=standard,
if the filter matches, the object should be returned otherwise a 404 should result
is not implemented in the specified way. If the filter matches I get a list and if it does
not I get a 200 with an empty list.

> Currently if I GET for, say a queue, by the object's full path {{/queue/vhn/vh/myqueue}},
I get a JSON list contain the queue object, rather than an object directly.  This makes the
REST API's abstraction inconsistent: I PUT a queue as an object, but GET gives me a list.
> The REST API should be returning a list only in those situations where a multiple object
response could arise e.g. {{/queue/vhn/vh}}, wildcards or filtering.
