Subject Re: [DISCUSS] DeployVirtualMachine userdata enhancements
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2013 04:30:54 GMT
Good point Rohit, but I suggest making only those API's POST which create
a resource (like deployVm here) and not all of them.
Ideally, we need to be using the right http methods for a true restful web
service.

Also about the length part, how then we allow user data to be of size 2kb
currently ?
