# With xmlStorageSystem, you have the getMyDirectory() method that returns
# XML document. Why doesn't that document have an URL that I can do a GET
For the same reason that WebDAV uses PROPFIND instead of GET for similar
operations? That there are too many parameters and options that control
what "that document" actually contains?
There was a nice design principle that was held to in DAV, that the
server controls the URL space, and the client doesn't make up funny URLs.
And that servers shouldn't be forced to assign URLs for things
Maybe it would be nice if a server *did* have a URL for the return
value of a SOAP request for it to supply a Content-Location that could
be used by subsequent GET requests?
Only picture of FoRKer in an RFC (RFC 2397 section 4)
