Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-648) _update handler ignores "code" in response doc
Date Tue, 09 Feb 2010 21:50:28 GMT
_update handler ignores "code" in response doc

                 Key: COUCHDB-648
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Database Core
         Environment: CouchDB from HEAD
            Reporter: Cliff Stanford

When using an _update handler, it should be possible to return a response code.

  return [ doc, {
  headers : { "Location" : "/" },
  code	  : 303,
  body	  : 'Redirecting'

Should return 303 (the redirect for POST) but in fact, on a successful create returns 201.
 This means it is not possible to use the browser to POST as you cannot redirect on return.
 This feels like a bug.

In any case, I would respectfully suggest that the syntax of the _update handler be changed
so that there is a store(doc) call (or similar) which returns a JSON object to the update
handler so that the handler may redirect appropriately.  That would make it possible to do
updates client-side with little or no client-side javascript.
