Subject PUT or POST?
Date Sat, 29 Jul 2006 17:34:50 GMT
    We have a webapp that needs to support binary updloads from a remove 
fat client: if our client crashes we'd like it to automatically "send" a 
zipped log file to our web application. the delivered file would NOT be 
stored in Tomcat server's file system - but inserted into db.

Apparently our fat client can issue either a POST or a PUT request. The 
client developer has a slight preference for PUT. I must admit to not 
being familiar with HTTP PUTs - are there any downside to using PUTs 
(aside from having to override doPut())?
