Subject Re: tomcat 5.8.0 - weird response on HTTP OPTIONS method
Date Fri, 06 Jan 2006 17:50:38 GMT
I'm curious - why would you need the options method ?

Obviously, as you found, tomcat does not support it ( and many other
servers ), and I never heard of any use of it, even if it is in the
spec.

Well, in theory servlets could respond to 'options' method if they
choose to - and so could the default servlet.
