Hi Ralph,

is the oslc/lyo framework you mention above capable of updating several attributes of a work item at the same time ?
In my case i have to update the state of a work item and provide a comment (if the comment is not there i get a http 403). I have tried to achieve this with 'regular' http calls but failed to to get it done

I believe that is the case. Basically you use a representation where you change as many values as you want. Then you Put/Post whatever that content. And all changed values should be changed. Note: you have to response with all the changed and unchanged data. Omitting data is a delete as far as I can tell.

I provided some information how Lyo works here: . I am also only a Lyo beginner.
