CouchDB: #get attempts to retrieve a view rather than the resource directly.

Reported by Thai Doan | November 3rd, 2008 @ 01:16 AM

CouchDB allows a service to retrieve a document using REST. However, attempts at retrieving a record directly using get attempts to access a view rather than using a REST url. DataMapper will POST a _temp_view instead of using a GET for the identifier.

class User
  include DataMapper::Resource

  property :id, String, :key => true, :field => :_id, :nullable => true
  property :rev, String, :field => :_rev
  property :login, String

User.create(:login => "foo@bar.com")  # => #<User id="1ccec6b60f93af5420029d0c02d4ffcf" rev="3474471722" login="foo@bar.com">

User.get("1ccec6b60f93af5420029d0c02d4ffcf")  # CouchDB: - - 'POST' /scratch/_temp_view 200

# Rather, a nicer access would be - - 'GET' /scratch/1ccec6b60f93af5420029d0c02d4ffcf 200

    Thanks for pointing it out Thai, but it should work as described (and as you mentioned) in newer versions. So I'm closing.
