  • i don't really understand the difference between "view" and "download". isn't it a problem of the APIApplication Programming Interface client, what to do with the response? i.e. if the client is a browser and the response happens to be HTMLHypertext Markup Language, it may as well display it, whereas if it is a zip file, it may open the download dialog.--Robert 08:39, 2 March 2009 (UTCCoordinated Universal Time)
    • Sure, you are right, the client can ignore this option and handle the response like he wants. I implemented this as a comfort feature for our communication with pubman.--Friederike 08:48, 2 March 2009 (UTCCoordinated Universal Time)
    • sounds like a good reason, not to have it in the public APIApplication Programming Interface :)
    • Perhaps its a comfort feature for others as well ;)
      • ok. but what exactly is the difference between the responses for "view" and "download"? just a "content-disposition" header?--Robert 16:04, 2 March 2009 (UTCCoordinated Universal Time)
