I love software development, and technology of all kinds. I have a boy and a girl and a beautiful wife, all of whom I adore. I practice Southern Chinese Kung Fu, and hope that my kids will too. I write code and play boardgames in my spare time.

I currently work as a JEE engineer in Edina, MN.

I'd recommend reading HgInit and putting your code in a free version control repository such as at Bitbucket.

Why do you need to put the store ID in the JSON payload of your PUT request? The REST service ought to be able to figure out the store ID from the PUT request URL.
