Newer REST-based APIs are starting to use HATEOAS, which stands for Hypermedia as the Engine of Application State. The central idea of HATEOAS is to allow the server to control the state transitions instead of hard coding all the links into the client. We've integrated a HATEOAS layer in the Ext JS framework based on the HAL standard (http://stateless.co/hal_specification.html) and into the Ext JS model and store system. We will be showing the techniques we used to accomplish this in a way that keeps the Ext JS model and store usage the same as the standard mechanism.
