Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-735) Support HTTP POST for the change notification filter API
Date Tue, 13 Apr 2010 18:19:04 GMT
Support HTTP POST for the change notification filter API
--------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-735
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-735
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HTTP Interface
    Affects Versions: 0.11
            Reporter: Ning Tan


Currently the change notification filters only support HTTP GET. This limits their usefulness
for cases where the filter criteria passed in exceed URL query length limitations. If the
API supports HTTP POST, the filter function can then inspect the BODY of the request for filtering
criteria.

I started a discussion on the mailing list here: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/couchdb-user/201004.mbox/browser.
Chris suggested that I modify the change API to support POST (in the Erlang code) myself as
an experiment. I was able to verify that the filter function was able to see the BODY of the
request. However, the changes feed (with the filtering function) hangs whenever there is a
BODY in the request (for both GET and POST verbs).

I'm attaching a patch that contains the change Chris proposed as well as the updated Futon
JavaScript test file for the changes API. The test currently times out (and fails). It should
work once the feature is implemented.
