Hi ,
I just want to test the functionality of doPut and doDelete methods in Simple Hello Servlet.How can I test this ?. I know doPut() is used to place some resource(files) on the server and doDelete() is to delete some resource(files) on server. Is there any way to test these methods ?


Regards
Raju

The "POST" and "GET" are the only valid methods for an HTML form. So you cannot test the other HTTP methods with HTML forms.

If you have plenty of time, you could try implementing a HTTP client using socket connections. But if you need it faster, you can try Apache HttpClient to simulate "PUT" and "DELETE"

Check the PUT example and DELETE example pages for further instructions
