Re: HTTP PUT for RESTful Web services on roUrlTransfer?

Hi,
I am looking into integrating a new channel with a third party RESTful service that requires HTTP PUT requests for certain operations.

Do you have an update on this feature request, Joel?

Does anybody else know of a working solution or workaround for HTTP PUT, possibly using roStreamSocket as suggested by kbenson?

Thanks

Looking into the status. It appears that our sister company BrightSign implemented it, not sure if we did on our end, the bug is still open.

Do you have some examples of popular APIs where this would be of value? Hard to get something built if only a few obscure APIs require PUT and DELETE.

How about the Google Data apis? Don't get much bigger than that.

Plus, they are basic HTTP verbs, and you never know when the next up-and-coming api will require them.

I second that request! There are a lot of REST services out there now (including a lot of developers that are probably creating their own now). I would be very nice to have built-in support for this!

Hi Joel,

there's a ton of REST based APIs out there and I'm sure a lot them use PUT:

IMHO supporting PUT (and possibly DELETE) would facilitate the development of channels beyond the traditional "media consumption" use cases.

Re: HTTP PUT for RESTful Web services on roUrlTransfer?

It turns out that the SetRequest method of roURLtransfer supports this:

http=createobject("roURLTransfer")
http.setRequest("PUT")

This is now published in the online SDK:
