Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-161) Range Request support for attachments
Date Tue, 10 Aug 2010 20:24:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-161?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12897028#action_12897028

Robert Newson commented on COUCHDB-161:
---------------------------------------

I'm working on this here: http://github.com/rnewson/couchdb/tree/ranges

So far I have (buggy) single range requests working. The format of attachments is enhanced
to permit efficient seeking also. I deliberately do not support the Range header when the
data is stored compressed at this time.

I'm doing this in my spare time, so expect updates on weekends. That said, I got everything
on this branch done over last weekend, so I don't anticipate completion to be far off. I would
like it to be working and committed to trunk before the start of CouchCamp.

> Support for byte ranges in attachment requests (a la http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.35)
would allow couch to be a more robust data store for media-heavy applications, for instance,
streaming audio or video.
