Could someone please confirm which of the following is true?
1. The lastUpdated property of a Series represents the latest time that any properties of the series, or any of the properties of the Episodes or Actors associated with that series, were updated. A pseudo formula would look something like this:
where MAX is the most recent lastUpdate for the item or collection of items.
Code: Select all
Series.lastUpdate = MAX(Series.lastUpdate, MAX(Series.Episodes.lastUpdate), MAX(Series.Actors.lastUpdated)))
2. The lastUpdated property of a Series only represents the latest time that any property of the series was updated; it does not reflect updates or additions to the Episodes or Actors associated with the series.
I'm hoping that the first is true, since that greatly simplifies determining which series need to be examined for changes.
Also, can anyone explain why the actor.LastUpdated properties doesn't use the Epoch timestamp used by Series and Episode?
Thanks in advance -- any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
