Attempting to sort on a one-to-many relationship


#1

The spec calls outs an example of sorting on a one-to-one relationship (e.g. author.name), but does not make mention of what should happen if a sort is requested against one-to-many relationship (e.g. comments.body).

While actually trying to perform this sort does not make sense, what would the best response be? 400? Sort the relationship in question?


#2

All data types would have a natural sort order, I would imagine that sort would then put the bodies in alphabetical order. It might not make a ton of sense in a blog example, but I don’t really see any particular reason to assume the sort should fail.

Therefor I would say sort away.
