Tunneled Requests

This section does not define a new request type, but rather defines an alternate way of representing Update Request Types (section and Delete Request Types (section by using a POST request and the X-HTTP-Method (section request header. This alternative representation is often referred to as "POST tunneling".

This Tunneled Request type is fully defined through X-HTTP-Method header usage. As such, see X-HTTP-Method (section for details regarding how the X-HTTP-Method header is used to create a Tunneled Request.
