HTTP commands

Inserting data - POST, PUT and PATCH

When inserting data, the HTTP body is the value to be inserted.
If the HTTP body is gzip encoded, JDB will store the data as gzip compressed.
You can also request that JDB compresses an un-compressed body using ?compress parameter.
The Content-Type used in the insertion will be stored by JDB and returned in a GET request later.

Example: POST /db/232/933/image.svg?compress

Retrieving single entry - GET

When retrieving data, the HTTP response contains the data which was requested.
You can request the data to be compressed in gzip, base64, base64url or not to be compressed using the Accept-Encoding HTTP header.
HTTP Range is supported

Example: GET /db/232/933/image.svg

Retrieving multiple entries - GET

If you request a URI which is not a single entry, you will receive all entries encoded as either JSON or JDB binary depending on your Accept-Encoding.
If you stored JSON-data in a value, JDB support returning it as a part of a multi-retrieve without double-encoding the individual JSON response data.

Example: GET /db/232/

Returned data can be:

933: { raw json or other type of data }
, 12344: { raw json or other type of data }
