Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-190) _uuid should respond to GET, not POST
Date Sat, 03 Jan 2009 15:11:44 GMT
_uuid should respond to GET, not POST
-------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-190
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-190
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Database Core
    Affects Versions: 0.9
            Reporter: Matt Goodall


The /_uuid resource can happily return a response to a GET without being unresty. In fact,
supporting POST is probably incorrect as it implies it would change server state.

Quick summary:

* _uuid never changes server state
* calling _uuid multiple times does not impact other clients
* that the resource returns something different each time it is requested does not mean it
cannot be a POST
* GET with proper cache control (i.e. don't cache it ever) will work equally well
