Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-867) Add http handlers for root files with special meanings, such as crossdomain.xml.
Date Mon, 23 Aug 2010 08:52:17 GMT
Add http handlers for root files with special meanings, such as crossdomain.xml.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-867
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-867
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HTTP Interface
    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
            Reporter: Eric Desgranges


Some files at the root level of a website have a special meaning, such as favicon.ico storing
the favorite icon, which is processed correctly in the [httpd_global_handlers] section of
the ini file with this instruction:
favicon.ico = {couch_httpd_misc_handlers, handle_favicon_req, "../share/couchdb/www"}

But this is the only one handled while other files, which are critical when to accessing the
CouchDB server from Flash, Flex, Silverlight..., are missing
- crossdomain.xml (this one should be a top priority fix!)
- clientaccesspolicy.xml -- See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc838250%28v=VS.95%29.aspx#crossdomain_communication

And there's also 'robots.txt' to prevent search engines from accessing some files / directories.
