xml_http_request(request_method, path, parameters = nil, headers = nil) public

Performs an XMLHttpRequest request with the given parameters, mirroring a request from the Prototype library.

The request_method is :get, :post, :put, :delete or :head; the parameters are nil, a hash, or a url-encoded or multipart string; the headers are a hash. Keys are automatically upcased and prefixed with ‘HTTP_' if not already.

This method used to omit the request_method parameter, assuming it was :post. This was deprecated in Rails 1.2.4. Always pass the request method as the first argument.
