Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-648) _update handler ignores "code" in response doc
Date Sat, 18 Sep 2010 22:24:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-648?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12911111#action_12911111
] 

Felix Henninger commented on COUCHDB-648:
-----------------------------------------

I would like to add that this issue persists when the start() method is used (c.f. http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Formatting_with_Show_and_List#Sending_a_Redirect
).

As rnewson commented on IRC, the response code is hardcoded for _updates (couch_httpd_show:send_doc_update_response;
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/couchdb/trunk/src/couchdb/couch_httpd_show.erl?view=markup#L125),
but not for _lists and _shows -- creating consistency here would also be helpful.

In line with the original author, I would personally much appreciate this addition, since
it would allow for basic form processing without javascript, and thereby provide graceful
degradation for CouchDB-based web apps.

> When using an _update handler, it should be possible to return a response code.
>   return [ doc, {
>   headers : { "Location" : "/" },
>   code	  : 303,
>   body	  : 'Redirecting'
>   }];
> Should return 303 (the redirect for POST) but in fact, on a successful create returns
201.  This means it is not possible to use the browser to POST as you cannot redirect on return.
 This feels like a bug.
> In any case, I would respectfully suggest that the syntax of the _update handler be changed
so that there is a store(doc) call (or similar) which returns a JSON object to the update
handler so that the handler may redirect appropriately.  That would make it possible to do
updates client-side with little or no client-side javascript.
