#209 closed editorial (fixed)

identified resource indepent of scheme?

Reported by: julian.reschke@… Owned by: fielding@…
Priority: normal Milestone: unassigned
Component: p1-messaging Severity: Active WG Document
Keywords: Cc:


Raised by Nathan in <http:///>:

The HTTP spec specifies "The PUT method requests that the enclosed entity be stored at the supplied request-target." and under p1 messaging 4.2 "The exact resource identified by an Internet request is determined by examining both the request-target and the Host header field."

The above would lead me to believe that in both an http and https request (when using the 'path-absolute') that the resource identified in both cases is a scheme-less concatenation of host & 'path-absolute'. However when an the request-target is an absolute-URI then..? (do we chop the schemes off to get the resource identified?)"
