Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-882) Nonstandard HTTP methods not converted to JSON correctly
Date Wed, 08 Sep 2010 03:30:33 GMT
Nonstandard HTTP methods not converted to JSON correctly

                 Key: COUCHDB-882
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HTTP Interface
    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
         Environment: Erlang R13, Linux
            Reporter: Jason Smith
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 1.0.1
         Attachments: 0001-For-unknown-HTTP-methods-Use-a-binary-for-httpd.meth.patch

Since COUCHDB-815, CouchDB allows nonstandard or unknown HTTP methods in case a _show or similar
function may want to implement a response to that method.

Unfortunately the (my) patch in that ticket used couch_util:to_existing_atom which returns
the passed value unmodified if it has no corresponding atom. That is wrong because the HTTP
method will be copied into the `req` object in the view server, therefore it must not be an
Erlang string (list of integers) because those do not JSONify correctly. Instead, if the atom
does not exist, the method should be converted to a binary.
