Add PATCH HTTP operation to RestTemplate [SPR-14857] #19423
It would be useful to me and my team if RestTemplate supported the HTTP PATCH method on equal footing with the other common HTTP methods (GET, PUT, POST, DELETE). My team's RESTful APIs use PATCH extensively, as do many public REST APIs (Salesforce, Github, and Google Drive off the top of my head). I am willing to do the implementation of this, but I wanted to reach out and see if there was interest before I began work / send a PR.
I understand that PATCH is possible via the
The APIs would follow the same structure as the POST APIs, since the relevant RFC seems to indicate that PATCH can return a response (in my team we return 204 No Content from successful PATCHes, but that might not be the case for others). I would also submit a PR to spring-boot for a similar change in TestRestTemplate (my true goal ;))
