load metadata in batch request

Jul 1, 2013 at 3:43 PM
Hi guys,

it is possible to load the metadata in a batch request? If yes how do I do it?

Normally I would hand over the metadata handler but when using batch I use the batch handler.

Does this work or is that not possible?

Thanks and best regards

Hi Joe,

currently you can't do this with datajs API, I think you can write your own handler that can detect that the response is metadata or not but that would be complicated.
Is there a certain scenario that you have that needs to request that metadata in a batch request ?

Hi nomier,

thanks for your reply. I wanted to know if this is possible or not. But you are right, normally it is not necessary.

I thought about doing the metadata batch request and additionally in that request do a loading of data where datajs can already use that returned metadata for the next data load request in the batch response from the server. But I guess this is not possible.
