Subject Re: add doGet support
Date Fri, 11 Aug 2000 15:54:57 GMT

I wasn't necessarily thinking of having 'write' operation just 'read' ones

But if there's a security issue with this then wouldn't there be one with
Admin stuff?

Uh, are you sure that's a good idea? I'm thinking security here. I
don't want everybody who can send SOAP requests to my server to
actually be able to *administer* my SOAP service manager... I'm not
sure all webservers out there have the ACL granularity allowing POST
requests to go unauthenticated, but forcing a login for GET to the same
