    RESTeasy and X-HTTP-Method-Override

    jrinderle Newbie

      Are there any plans to support the X-HTTP-Method-Override request header (automatically/transparently) in RESTeasy? (Forgive me if this is already a feature -- I searched the forums and wiki and did not find anything.) This would make it much easier to support clients that cannot send PUT/DELETE requests. Yes, overriding POST is less than ideal but I think the Google convention of using X-HTTP-Method-Override is a reasonable/convenient work-around. If RESTeasy could dispatch POST requests with the X-HTTP-Method-Override header automatically it would be a big time saver. I think Jersey just added something like this via a filtering approach, but I'd prefer to stick with RESTeasy.
