page 114 of HFS-sharpen ur pencil question..the answer says get,head and putmethods are idempotent according to http 1.1spec..
but put method puts the enclosed info(body)at requested url....doesn't that mean it updates the server(which makes put a non idempotent method)??

1) The question you mentioned, #6 in Chapter 7

2) Be the Container in chapter 8, the third example will not work for the same reason that the first example doesn't work--because the attribute is at Request Scope, and the default scope is Page scope.

3) Pg. 114, upside down text should say "Post is considered NOT idempotent".

4) The one you found earlier, Question 5 in the Filters chapter, the book says the answers are "A" and "G", but "D" should ALSO be marked as a correct answer.

and finally... the worst one of all...

5) We spelled Philippe Maquet's name wrong on page xxxi. We spelled it correctly on page xxx, though, so we had it right 50% of the time.

I'd say you're doing very well Andrew. The fact that you're questioning these is a good sign. And since you're already on the Filters chapter... looks like you're just about done!

cheers and good luck (and thank-you),
Kathy
