Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-648) _update handler ignores "code" in response doc
Date Mon, 20 Jun 2011 18:42:53 GMT


Michael Coyne commented on COUCHDB-648:

Being able to set response codes for "failed" updates would be very useful. I feel it's more
inline with the API overall as well.

+1 for this feature.

> 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.
