Subject Re: security and validation API?
Date Fri, 10 Apr 2009 21:31:58 GMT
Thanks for the pointers, Patrick!

Is the "validate_doc_update" a special function that CouchDB looks for
when processing a PUT request? If the design document contains the
validation function, but you're updating a regular document, how will
CouchDB know which design document contains the validation function to
run?
