Writing REST APIs often requires one end-point to return an empty response even if the client is expecting a JSON/XML object.

Instead of making the server return an explicit empty object (e.g. {}), a better solution is to send a '204 No Content' message back to the client.

On stackoverflow I found a small discussion on the subject:

Merge, please. I've had to basically re-implement this on my own. Glad to see someone already had an open pull request, otherwise I would have opened one.
