Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-472) handle custom CouchdDB welcome page
Date Mon, 09 Aug 2010 14:12:17 GMT


Filipe Manana commented on COUCHDB-472:

Hi Benoit,

Shouldn't the web page be served only if the client accepts text/html? The patch seems to
send the page when the client doesn't explicitely list "application/json" as acceptable.

Also, there's something missing when parsing the Accept header.
You grab its value and then split it based on commas. But the Accept header can be a Q values

If you have "Accept: application/json; q = 0.5, *; q = 0.3", your code will serve the html
page anyway, ignoring the q = 0.5.

Look at for parsing
a Q values list.

> If Accept content is application/json Couchdb will send :
> "couchdb":"Welcome","version":"0.10.0a"}
> If other it will send welcome.html.
