Subject Re: 500 server error posting a view
Date Tue, 10 Jun 2008 19:25:51 GMT
When I remove the text/ prefix I still get the 500 error, and the
query interface in the browser starts throwing "undefined" alert
boxes. One thing I find confusing is the error is saying
application/json is not a defined query language. Is my POST supposed
to have Content-Type application/json or text/javascript? I see a mix
of both here:

http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Views

"Temporary views are not stored in the database, but rather executed
on demand. To execute a temporary view, you make an HTTP POST request
to the URI /{dbname}/_temp_view, where the body of the request
contains the code of the view function and the Content-Type header is
set to text/javascript. "

OR

http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/HttpViewApi

"Ad Hoc Views
One-off queries (eg. views you don't want to save in the CouchDB
database) can be done via the special view _temp_view:

POST /some_database/_temp_view  HTTP/1.0
Content-Length: 48
Date: Mon, 10 Sep 2007 17:11:10 +0200
Content-Type: application/json

{
  "map" : "function(doc) { if (doc.foo=='bar') { emit(null, doc.foo); } }"
}
"

Seems like conflicting info to accomplish the same thing.
