 Description  « Hide

The specification is unclear for some or all of the above methods how the following should be handled.

  • path parameters - should they be included in the returned values or not?
  • normalisation - should the returned values be pre- or -post any normalisation?
  • url decoding - should the returned values be decoded or include the escapes?
  • character encoding - if a value is decoded, what character encoding should be used?
  • welcome files - if a request maps to a welcome file, should it be included in the return values?
