hateoas implementation


#1

Which Implementation of hateoas is used in hsds? See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HATEOAS#Implementations : All attempts using Spring hateoas / Traverson ( https://docs.spring.io/spring-hateoas/docs/current/reference/html/#client) failed.

Is there any known java library that helps us dealing with that hateoas implementation?

The hateoas implementation in HSDS is not using any particular protocol. I wasn’t even aware that there was a formal standard for hateoas; my impression being that the responses were aimed at the human reader.

For those who are not familiar with hateoas, if you look at a url like: https://hsdshdflab.hdfgroup.org/?domain=/shared/tall.h5, you can see under hrefs we have links for self, parent, acls, etc. You can follow this links to other resources and get relevant hrefs for each of those objects.

Are you looking to develop a Java client with HSDS?
