Background: The custom renderer wants to present the "related topics/What's related area" by the composite-Values of the respective Association (in this case: AssocType? Wikidata Claim is of type Composite).

Core: extend REST API with fetchComposite (#659).

Core REST API: the topic's and association's "get related topics" request takes 2 optional query parameters (boolean): fetch_composite and fetch_relating_composite. As usual they respectively indicate weather the child topics should be included in the response.

  1. The related topic's child topics (fetch_composite).
  2. The child topics of the association that connects the related topic (fetch_relating_composite).

Default value for both parameters is false.

GET /core/topic/{id}/related_topics?...&fetch_composite=true&fetch_relating_composite=true

GET /core/association/{id}/related_topics?...&fetch_composite=true&fetch_relating_composite=true

See #659.

Unfortunately in the final 4.4 release the fetch_relating_composite query parameter has been dropped again (in the course of globally removing the fetchComposite parameters from the Core APIs). Currently (as of DM 4.5) the REST API only supports the include_childs query parameter but not an include_assoc_childs query parameter.

The REST API should support an include_assoc_childs query parameter.

In d4727dd05aec54610f0f540c40ef9646614fc6cc/deepamehta:

REST API: add "include_assoc_childs" param (#659).

The REST API supports 1 new query parameter:


It can be used for every resource method which returns a DeepaMehtaObject or an Iterable of DeepaMehtaObject. If set to true the child topics of the object's Relating Associations are included in the response. This works only if include_childs=true is present as well.


Core API

1 method removed from ChildTopics:

Iterable<String> childTypeUris()

Instead a ChildTopics object is itself an Iterable<String> now (analogous to ChildTopicsModel).

See #659.
