comment REST API - omitted properties in POST request: How should they be handled?
POST and PUT can both create, but in completely different ways. POST will create a resource, but the resultinig URI of the new resource is determined by the server. PUT creates a resource, but at a specified (by the client/request) location.

comment REST API - omitted properties in POST request: How should they be handled?
David, thanks. That's very helpful and exactly the type of answer I'm looking for. I want my API to do the "expected" thing (as long as the expected thing is within the guidelines of http and REST). So if this is how jsonapi and odata are working, and it's kind of the de facto expected behavior, that's how I'll implement it.

I see your point. It's something to consider. I will research POST more.

@NoobsArePeople2 No PATCH. What's wrong with POST?

@CodesInChaos Not using PATCH. There's no need for PATCH, it's a redundant verb, POST covers it nicely.

@CodesInChaos PUT is not for updates unless you are completely replacing the entity.

comment What can REST API do that a API using HTTP URL query strings cannot do?
This doesn't really answer the question, and isn't really true either.

Thanks Robert. I'm actually asking about client side rich object model. I'm assuming a rich object model on the server side.
