Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1175) Improve content type negotiation for couchdb JSON responses
Date Sat, 09 Jul 2011 00:28:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1175?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13062267#comment-13062267
] 

Randall Leeds commented on COUCHDB-1175:
----------------------------------------

Can I propose another solution? Always send a 401 and not a 3xx. If an *application* (Futon
being one such application) wishes to not show this dialog then it should issue requests with
XHR and handle the 401 itself. It actually seems somewhat broken to me to try to redirect
to Futon files and I'd prefer we work toward *de*coupling CouchDB from Futon rather than vice
versa.

> Currently we ignore qvalues when negotiation between 'application/json' and 'text/plain'
when returning JSON responses.
> Specifically, we test directly for 'application/json' or 'text/plain' in the Accept header.
Different branches have different bugs, though. Trunk returns 'application/json' if 'application/json'
is present at all, even if it's less preferred than 'text/plain' when qvalues are accounted
for.
> We should follow the standard.
