Rails complaining about {:method=>:get} on an AJAX call

Hello guys,

I hope you can point me in the right direction. I just moved to Rails
2.0 and I'm having some problems.
I'm using ExtJS (excellent widget library btw), to make my

Right now I'm testing a login form that I'm developing for a web
application, the login form sends the info throught AJAX.

I get a 404 error from the server, it complains that the method used
to pass the values was GET, but I'm pretty sure it was a POST, here is
the firebug error:
-> POST http://localhost:3000/session/404 (313ms)

And this is what firebug report in the [Headers | Post | Response]:


I'm using ExtJS as I said, and it abstracts the AJAX calling. Here is
the code for the form:

This is the code of the form:
var submitUrl = '/session';

var formPanel = new Ext.form.FormPanel({
            baseCls: 'x-plain',
                        method: 'post',
            baseParams: {
              module: 'login'
            bodyStyle: 'background:#f9f9f9 none; color:#222; padding:5px
            defaults: {
              width: 200
            defaultType: 'textfield',
            frame: false,
            height: 70,
            id: 'login-form',
            items: [{
                fieldLabel: 'Nombre de usuario',
                name: 'login',
                value: 'usuario'
                fieldLabel: 'Contraseña',
                inputType: 'password',
                name: 'password',
                value: 'contraseña'
                            inputType: 'hidden',
                            hidden: true,

            region: 'south',
            url: submitUrl

Or can I get the info you want from firebug? if so, if you tell me I
can get it for you.

Yeah, what I'm trying to understand is why would my POST parameters
end like a GET string, if Firebug is clearly showing a POST.

If I understand why that happens, I might be able to correct the error.

Shame on me, it was a problem with the Rails app, it was doing a
redirect to another page in the method that was invoked in the AJAX

I think that explains why I was getting my POST params as a GET

Well at least I hope this can help someone with my same problem :wink:
