[REST API] links are a special construct, neither relative nor absolute
Last modified: 2015-05-14 21:49:10 EDT
If you GET a resource you'd get links to possible operations. those links use hrefs that are neither absolute nor relative. They're a value a client would have to add to the broker base url. In our sense this is not ideal since it requires the client library to know about a service base url:
We'd strongly prefer absolute URL's since the logic behind resource URLs is then completely opaque for clients. They would not need any special knowledge about a base url, context or whatever.
Lowering priority since this could be addressed in a US.
changed all links to absolute
