Subject [jira] [Closed] (COUCHDB-2676) DELETE of a database returns JSON answer with type text/plain
Date Mon, 27 Apr 2015 15:58:39 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-2676?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Alexander Shorin closed COUCHDB-2676.
-------------------------------------
    Resolution: Not A Problem

It's a content type negotiation where for {{Accept: */*}} text/plain is preferred in the way
to make API be friendly for the browsers.

{code}
http delete http://localhost:5984/test 'Accept:application/json'
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Cache-Control: must-revalidate
Content-Length: 12
Content-Type: application/json
Date: Mon, 27 Apr 2015 15:56:00 GMT
Server: CouchDB/1.6.1 (Erlang OTP/17)

{
    "ok": true
}

{code}

If you explicitly ask for application/json response - you'll get it. Same is true for the
most of other endpoints. Search for "content negotiation" on JIRA for more info about that
behaviour.
