Hi all,

I just following at the link : http://java.boot.by/wcd-guide/ch01.html#c1s1 that


The fundamental difference between the POST and PUT requests is reflected in the different meaning of the Request-URI. The URI in a POST request identifies the resource that will handle the enclosed entity. That resource might be a data-accepting process, a gateway to some other protocol, or a separate entity that accepts annotations. In contrast, the URI in a PUT request identifies the entity enclosed with the request -- the user agent knows what URI is intended and the server MUST NOT attempt to apply the request to some other resource.

<form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="some_url" method="PUT">
<input type="file" name="fileToUpload" value="Select File">
<input type="submit" value="Upload">
<input type="reset" value="Reset">
</form>



Can anybody explain me - what is meant by ""In contrast, the URI in a PUT request identifies the entity enclosed with the request -- the user agent knows what URI is intended and the server MUST NOT attempt to apply the request to some other resource. ""

Thanks,
Yati

I've never used (or know anybody) who has used the PUT method...

If you researching this for the exam - you don't need to there are no detailed questions on HTTP methods other than POST and GET.
