Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-190) _uuid should respond to GET, not POST
Date Mon, 09 Feb 2009 15:23:00 GMT


Jan Lehnardt commented on COUCHDB-190:

>From dev@;

The patch looks solid assuming that using a date from 1900 is kosher.
Getting it accepted means waiting for one of the devs to go on a close
out spree. Its on the blocking list so don't worry about it missing

> 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
> Full discussion can be found on the user m.l.,
