edit() function refers to the UPDATE in CRUD?

The edit() function in a resource controller wasn't really referenced in the video so I just wanted to be sure that was supposed to be linked with the Update operation in CRUD? :-)

Hi there, Jonathan Grieve ! Yes, the edit() function would be used in the case that you have a form from which to gather the information, which is not the case here and it would be bound to that form. But it would edit an already existing entity, thus it does correspond to the "U" in CRUD :smiley:

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
