Dear All,
Just want to see how these methods actually works? So how we can send HEAD, PUT, DELETE, TRACE request to the web server? We can send GET and POST using browser. Can we use browser to send these request to the web server?

Thanks


Regards, Sharmila.

No, HTML forms only support GET and POST. But you can use JavaScript's XMLHttpRequest object to send the other types as well: http://developer.apple.com/internet/webcontent/xmlhttpreq.html

Also you can use Apache HTTP Client library to programmatically generate different types of requests to your web-server
