spring-data-rest-alpsGreetings Spring Community!

We are working on a new feature inside Spring Data REST: meta-data. When you are talking to RESTful backend over the wire, you might not know the details of the resources behind the URIs. This enhancement provides a way to dynamically serve up domain-specific meta-data to the clients.

If you’re interested, you can see a tiny example of what we’re working on.

The README at the site includes information about to check it out, run it, and interact with the hypermedia-powered, RESTful interface. It shows you how to leverage the meta-data to create new entries.

I need your help

Please feel free to visit the site and try it out. Anything missing? Something not clear? Feel free to either tweet me @gregturn, leave a comment on this blog post, or if you’re feeling bold enough, open a github issue against my TODO example.
