What is the purpose of the OPTIONS method?
From http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec9.html

"The OPTIONS method represents a request for information about the communication options available on the request/response chain identified by the Request-URI. This method allows the client to determine the options and/or requirements associated with a resource, or the capabilities of a server, without implying a resource action or initiating a resource retrieval. "

I'm using to enable CORS (Cross-Origin Resource Sharing)

Requests for mime types other than text/plain, must be "preflighted", and browsers use the OPTIONS method request to execute this "preflight" query.
