io.bind should support all HTTP Methods for REST API's

I think the BrowserIO transport should support additional HTTP Methods, currently the canHandle method checks that the method is GET, POST or HEAD.

With the advent of REST API's additional methods are widely used (PUT, DELETE).

I'm not aware of any issues in implementing these methods.

Neither Safari nor Opera 8.5 support methods other than GET and POST, that was the original reasoning. This is also a dup of another bug, will close both when we make a decision.

all methods are actually accepted but some of them need something more. Particularly, PUT has to send data to the server but current code in BrowserIO.js threats it with http.send(null);

So, IMHO, for PUT you should add something similar to:

else {

if (kwArgs.method.toLowerCase() == "put") {, url, async); setHeaders(http, kwArgs); http.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", kwArgs.contentType); try{


}catch(e){ if(typeof http.abort == "function"){


} doLoad(kwArgs, {status: 404}, url, query, useCache); }

} else other methods, GET, DELETE, ... ...

around line 516.

This code is a "proof of concept" but works well for me. Best regards.

Reassigning to Alex, given the rewrite work he's done with Dojo 0.9.

Alex, someone on the forums was asking about REST support; did you take care of this ticket when you ported io.bind at all? Be nice to say "gee, took care of it" and close a bug ;)

dojo.xhrPut, dojo.rawXhrPut, and dojox.xhrDelete have been implemented in 0.9.
