Subject RE: Call to View returns 405. It's using OPTIONS not GET
Date Sat, 19 May 2012 22:50:43 GMT
This is just some more info.  Where is "OPTIONS" coming from?  It looks like the view function
tries to use GET, but we end up with OPTIONS.

OPTIONS http://test:5984/forms/_design/formlist/_view/formlist HTTP/1.1
Host: test:5984
Connection: keep-alive
Access-Control-Request-Method: GET
Origin: null
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/535.19 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/18.0.1025.168
Access-Control-Request-Headers: origin, content-type, accept
Accept: */*
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate,sdch
Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.8

Subject: Call to View returns 405. It's using OPTIONS not GET

I'm trying to call a view using the CouchDB Javascript API.  The $db.view call is failing
with a "405 Method Not Allowed" error.  $db.view is generating the correct URL, but the call
appears to be failing because the view function is using HTTP OPTIONS method ( or maybe JQuery).
 If I change the HTTP method to GET & manually send the HTTP request, then it works fine.
 I need $db.view to generate a GET.  Any thoughts?



Sample Code

  $.couch.urlPrefix ="http://test:5984"
  $db = $.couch.db("forms");

  function GetFormList() {  
   $db.view("formviews/formlist", {  
    success: function(data) {  
     for (i in data.rows) {  
      id = data.rows[i].id;  
      html = '<div class="form">' +  
       '<span class="form">' + id + '</span> ' +  
       '<a href="#" class="edit">edit</a> '+  
       '<a href="#" class="delete">delete</a> '+
