Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-676) trailing slash in path cannot be recovered by external process
Date Sat, 27 Feb 2010 17:37:05 GMT
trailing slash in path cannot be recovered by external process
--------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-676
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-676
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Infrastructure
    Affects Versions: 0.11
            Reporter: Andrew Straw


I modified the example given in the ExternalProcesses wiki page to return exactly the request
line and queried the external process with both a trailing slash ( http://127.0.0.1:5984/test/_test/
) and no trailing slash ( http://127.0.0.1:5984/test/_test ). The request line is exactly
the same for these two cases.

This is problematic because external processes may treat these cases differently. For example,
Django's CommonMiddleware class redirects any "path" to "path/" if there is a view at "path/"
but not at "path", which is usually the case for a default view of a Django app. When using
Django with couchdb-wsgi, this results in an infinite redirect loop because although Django
issues a redirect to "path/", couchdb-wsgi emits "path" as the path.
