WebStatusCodes, a web development utility by Brian Jones

By Vasudev Ram - | @vasudevram |

I think this tool can be useful to web developers:

WebStatusCodes - - is a web development utility written by Brian Jones, using Google AppEngine. Excerpts from the main page of the site, which convey what it is about:

This was put here as a handy testing tool for apps that need to test how their code deals with various HTTP status codes, and as a very basic reference for those who know HTTP but need an occasional reminder of whether 302 or 301 is "permanent", or can't remember which code means "Not Modified".
Request a valid status code by putting the status code as the first part of the URL path. For example, requesting will return a 403 forbidden error, and the body of the response will contain the standard message describing that response.
Currently, this site doesn't do anything other than return the error. 401 doesn't issue a challenge, for example.
This site is also a handy reference. Not only is the list of supported codes and their accompanying short  description messages in a table below (in case you *don't* know what you're looking for), but
requesting a status code in a browser includes the description in the body of the response (in case you *do* know  what you're looking for).

Below the last paragraph above, is a table of web (HTTP) request status codes and their accompanying short  descriptions.
