Subject Modeling Media Versions
Date Mon, 08 Oct 2007 17:11:35 GMT
OK, I have yet another modeling question. Lets say I have an image 
library and I want to archive different versions of the image as they 
move through the photoshop process. (don't get too caught up on the 
example, the basic ideas is that we have an entry which is backed by 
media and then its versioned).

The general idea of how to model it makes sense to me now based on the 
previous collection modelling thread. I will have a Collection of 
images. Each image <entry> will then contain a <collection> which refers 
to a specific version.

My question is how do I go about creating the first version? I can see 
two ways.

1. Post the media to /images and create an entry at 
2. Post to /images with just some metadata and create a 
/images/foo_image resource. Then post the media to /images/foo_image.

The second one seems more correct, but I dislike how its two steps and 
you have to create a resource without the initial image. Is there 
anything wrong with doing the first one?

Does that make sense? Any ideas?

- Dan
