Subject Resetting response in case of error
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2002 09:37:11 GMT
Since chunking is off-limits for now, I tried to investigate other means of
doing the same thing.

In Netscape-Mozilla, the solution is to send a multipart request, and it
Attatched is the code I used for (succesfull) testing in mozilla.

In IE6 there is the possibility of using the HTML+TIME 2.0 capabilities.
An example for a slideshow is at  .
For older IE browsers there's a similar capability.

Another possibility is using javascript to manipulate he DOM and delete
previous contents, or send a redirect and use a special URL to filter output
only to errors.

Another thing to consider is that we should not limit ourselves to http

IMHO this is too much work without real gain. If a user sees a mixed error
on the page, the developer didn't do it right. If the developer sees it, it
may help him in debugging the error (see where the stream stopped).

I don't have a real need for this capability, but would be very happy to
hear real-life needs regarding this feature.
IMO, sending a redirect to a pipeline that filters the error messages is the
easiest way.
