PUT: Guessing a Letter

Learn about using the PUT method to guess the letters in the game.

Designing the PUT method

Next, we will define the most complex method, the PUT method, where a letter guess is handled. This must account for special cases, such as:

  • A non-existent game
  • A game that has already ended
  • A request with no letter in the payload
  • A guessed letter that is more than one character
  • A repeat guess
  • No letter specified.

Handling special cases

What checks is this code missing? This method is typical because most of it is devoted to handling special cases, and only a small portion addresses the “typical” case.
