Create metadata only object without a file

Registered by Edward on 2012-08-03

Goal: Can create a new object in container without a file available. but I can upload the file later when it is ready. This works like a place-holder for a new object to allow user to flexibly share object metadata and URL info in advance.

A possible solution:
Use a zero byte (empty) file instead to upload at first. In the dashboard GUI, user is not required to select a file to create an object. There's no need to make any change for swift.

It may be also needed to add an option to edit the object. Right now Horizon does not have that capability.
