Just to clarify, I believe we have a "bottom-up" design. So, the REST Web Services is the top layer in our design. So really, this is what we have:
–REST Web Services
–Service views (tables rearranged to data objects)
–Combined views (formatted tables)
–Derived views (again, the tables)
–Base views (tables from data source)
The base views is the bottom layer that connects to a SQL database. I'm asking if I change the column names in the combined views layer if there's a way to have those changes automatically propogate through to the services layer. With the answer you gave I'm unsure how this would happen, unless you're saying that the changes made to the REST Web Services would be reflected down to the dependent views? With my example given, changes made to the REST Web Service will be reflected down to my dervied views?
