Subject [jira] Updated: (COUCHDB-558) Validate Content-MD5 request headers on uploads
Date Sat, 14 Nov 2009 22:08:39 GMT


Filipe Manana updated COUCHDB-558:

    Attachment: jira-couchdb-558-for-trunk.patch


I would like to have some feedback about this patch. I am learning Erlang, as well as CouchDB's
implementation, so this is a good exercise for me and, hopefully, a good contribution to CouchDB.

JavaScript test case is included.

A suggestion:

Don't you agree it would be also interesting to have a config option for CouchDB to include
MD5 digests for GET replies? This way the client side could validate the integrity of the
messages received from CouchDB.

best regards,
Filipe Manana

with the data and Couch validates the MD5 on arrival.
