17960Re: [rest-discuss] form parameter dependencies and value assist
- Nov 10 9:41 AMErik:
in one recent case, a client decided to handle these UI list
dependencies by sending all the data in the form and letting local
scripts to the filtering w/o the need to call back to the server. in
this case the lists were quite static (product-related filters) and
relatively small (tens of items in each list, not hundreds). caching
makes composing and shipping this representation to the clients
relatively inexpensive (after the first delivery to a client).
