[OSM-dev] Using API 0.6 to create a new node

Hi everyone,

I am trying to display OSM data into my web map as well as other custom 
One of the goals of my web application is to upload data from my 
application to the osm database.  I have been reading this 
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/API_v0.6#Elements but still I do not 
understand how a PUT request functions. I have so much to learn....

After authentificating with osmauth.js I try this code without any 
success. I get a 401 error.

var xml_string = '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <osm 
version="0.6" generator="MyOpenstreetmapApp"><node changeset="0" 
lat="41.983910" lon="2.816094"><tag k="shop" 

ajaxurl= "http://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/node/create";

     url: ajaxurl,
     data: xml_string,
     type: 'PUT',
     contentType: "text/xml",
     dataType: "text",
     success : function (resp){console.debug(resp)},
     error : function (xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError){

Do I need to include oauth_secret and oauth_consumer_key from the 
authentification proccess in the ajax request?

Any help will be really apreciated.
