Form submissions are POST (in Rails)

Reported by Xavier Noria | August 16th, 2010 @ 06:30 PM | in The Rails 3 Way

Section 3.4.3 states that "Form submissions are POSTs".

At this point in the book that sentence might be too simple in my opinion. Form submissions may be GET or POST, and in HTML by default they are GET! Thus, that opening may confuse the reader.

You could say for example, "Forms in Rails are POST by default". That's a bit ambiguous on purpose, the detailed wording mentioning form helpers etc. would be too verbose for my taste and too early in the book, and if you write a form tag by hand you are doing Rails but getting GET. Nonetheless, I think the sentence is both short, reads well, and "correct enough".
