Hi All,
I am trying to call the Spring REST application's POST call with the below curl commands.
>curl -v --request POST --data @postdata.txt http://localhost:8080/spring-rest-service/contact.json --header "Content-Type:application/json"

>curl -v --request POST --data '{"id":1,"firstName":"John","lastName":"Santosh"}' --header "Content-Type: application/json" http://localhost:8080/spring-rest-service/contact.json

Both commands are exactly same except specifying the json data in file for first command. 1st command is working fine but later is not!!! Later command is giving the below error:

* Adding handle: conn: 0xccae58
* Adding handle: send: 0
* Adding handle: recv: 0
* Curl_addHandleToPipeline: length: 1
* - Conn 0 (0xccae58) send_pipe: 1, recv_pipe: 0

The data in the postdta.txt is as below:

Never mind. It worked with the below format:

curl -v --request POST --data {\"id\":7,\"firstName\":\"me\",\"lastName\":\"Santosh\"} --header "Content-Type: application/json" http://localhost:8080/spring-rest-service/contact.json


Thanks.

One more doubt I have is... the below comand is returning the output in xml. I am using HttpMessageConverters without declaring in the spring context file. Using spring 3.2 version.
The doubt is, why the below command is returning xml output? It can return in json also? How it will be determined? As I have said, I have not declared anything in spring context file.

curl -v http://localhost:8080/spring-rest-service/contact



controller method is mentioned below and here also, I haven't mentioned anything like xml or json.



Thanks.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
