Entity Linking

Entity Linking is the name of a candidate design pattern authored by Raj Balasubramanian, Jim Webber, Thomas Erl and David Booth and published for review in the Candidate Patterns section at SOA Patterns

The requirements statement for Entity Linking is:

How can services maintain and expose the inherent linkage between business entities?

This is a REST-inspired pattern that is still under development. It will be further formalized and finalized as part of the "SOA with REST" book that is currently in progress. (See for more information.)
