using POST parameters is *explicitly* NOT RESTfull.


It should not be done, especially if you set out to write a RESTfull HTTP service.


If you need to do PUT or DELETE from a webpage you can always use XmlHttpRequest to fire your requests for you.


If you're worried about supporting some fringe operating systems then you can check out sarissa: http://sarissa.sourceforge.net/doc/
