How to do a HTTP PUT/DELETE? (Using jquery) . Im making a REST-ful twitter-type aplication using Java Servlets etc... and i have the methods for handling PUT and DELETE, i just need to be able to perform these e.g. when a user submits a form (with the id of the tweet to be deleted, for example). However, forms only support the methods POST and GET hence i was instructed to use jquery, which i am unfamiliar with. Can anyone help me?
