Modeling HTTP methods in JavaScript


In the blog post “The object-resource impedance mismatch”, I wondered what would happen if we model the semantics of HTTP methods in JavaScript. This is the accompanying code that allows you to play with it.


You need to have node.js or a another JavaScript interpreter installed. Then, execute this:

node http-methods.js

Alternatively, you can just use your browser's debug window.

The output makes most sense if you follow along with the source.
