REST APIs: Workaround for missing PATCH verb in Tomcat/AJP

Lucee supports the PATCH HTTP verb, as does Taffy which we’re using for our REST APIs, but it seems that Tomcat and/or AJP (I’m not clear which) doesn’t - which means PATCH requests default to GET.

What are people who are using Tomcat/AJP doing to work around this?

Our initial solution is to just use PUT and document its behaviour as that of PATCH.

Any better ideas?
