q@ request.request_method=='OPTIONS', ajax, post json

hi im reading through the topic above and trying to apply it to my app. as reference i found:http://leopard.in.ua/2012/07/08/using-cors-with-rails/

my prob is that i dont see the 'preflight', meaning the first request prior the actual post, which should(?) deliver this: request.request_method=='OPTIONS'

the js code look like this: $.ajax       ({     type: 'POST',     dataType: "json",     crossDomain: true,     url: "http://someserver/foo.json",     data: {test:999},

in application_controller.rb i have this in a before filter: def cors   p "calling - CORS"   p request.request_method #<< this is "POST" instead of the expected OPTIONS         p request.headers["HTTP_ORIGIN"] #<< this is http://localhost from which im posting         head(:ok) if true # request.request_method == "OPTIONS" end also in the browser inspection i see only the actual post, not the preflight request sending the OPTIONS.

am i on a wrong track here?


never mind, client caching
