How to set HTTP request method MOVE using
HttpURLConnection or libraries that rely on that class, the code is throwing an exception
Caused by: java.net.ProtocolException: Invalid HTTP method: MOVE. So I guess the
MOVE method is not supported by the Java platform.
Is there a patch or workaround for this issue / limitation? The workaround could be another java library for creating HTTP requests.
For reference here is SkyDrive API with the move feature we are trying to implement.
Note that the Ruby platform supports the
MOVE method. I wonder why java does not supports or even allow those extensions.
It's a bug in HttpURLConnection. If you don't want to switch to a different library, you can try to overwrite the method using introspection (yes, that's what Jersey does, see http://java.net/jira/browse/JERSEY-639)
