Feature #8429

Options requests in net/http should be able to accept a response body

Added by Chris Rice over 2 years ago. Updated over 1 year ago.

Assignee:Yui NARUSE


As it is currently implemented, Net::HTTP::Options does not allow responses to OPTIONS requests to have a response body:

class Net::HTTP::Options < Net::HTTPRequest

According to (()) section 9.2, responses to OPTIONS requests may contain response bodies:

"A 200 response SHOULD include any header fields that indicate optional features implemented by the server and applicable to that resource (e.g., Allow), possibly including extensions not defined by this specification. The response body, if any, SHOULD also include information about the communication options."

As it currently stands, net/http is not useful for issuing an OPTIONS request to an http server which actually makes use of the response body.
