if i didn't set data option in $.ajax(); with type : "POST" the request will fail.

$('a').click(function () {


url: $(this).attr('href'),

type: 'POST',

data: ,

success: function(data) { $('div').html(data); }


return false;

Summary: Problem with $.ajax();$.ajax() requires data param if type is POST

So if data is not supplied, you would want a POST with Content-length 0?

Could you provide some feedback on the expected behavior? Although jQuery could set content-length=0 and do the POST, it seems like omitting the data parameter is most likely an error in the caller's code.
