Apparently so (1), and apparently not (2):

===[server.rb]===
require 'webrick'

s = WEBrick::HTTPServer.new(:Port => 8086)

class PutServlet < WEBrick::HTTPServlet::AbstractServlet
   def do_PUT(req, res)

     # do what you like with the data here...

     res['Content-Type'] = "text/html"
     res.body = "Okay guv'nor, #{req.body} is 'put'..."
   end
end

s.mount("/putter", PutServlet)

trap("INT"){ s.shutdown }
s.start
===[END]===



===[putter.rb]==
require 'net/http'

h = Net::HTTP.new('localhost',8086)
r = h.put('/putter','A bit of the old data')
puts "And our server says: #{r.body}"
===[END]===



===[OUTPUT]===
And our server says: Okay guv'nor, A bit of the old data is 'put'...
===[END]===

So it's handled however you want it to be...
