Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1219) Send data

Send data

                 Key: COUCHDB-1219
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Johnny Weng Luu
            Priority: Minor

With CouchDB the application server landscape has changed. The database can now handle almost
all logic that is data related, eg. validation, updating, formatting etc.

It has a HTTP server for incoming requests but one thing I find missing is a HTTP client that
can push the data to other servers.

What I have to do right now to send the data to an external service is to setup a server (node.js)
that listens on the _changes feed.

When there is a document meant for being delivered through email node.js will send a HTTP
request to a email service (sendgrid).

I think it would make sense if CouchDB could make HTTP requests on document changes, so that
we can eliminate that extra layer.

Why only HTTP server for data but not HTTP client for data.

(This would make even more sense if CouchDB was redesigned with node.js).
