Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1779) Support of HTTP PATCH method to upload/update attachments in chunks
Date Fri, 26 Apr 2013 08:24:15 GMT


Robert Newson commented on COUCHDB-1779:

It's possible at the database level to add chunks of attachments separately, the question
is what the API looks like that's also RFC 2616 kosher, and then it's just a question of developer
time and priority.

> I'm currently facing a theoretical problem to upload large files over GSM network, my
storage back-end is CouchDB with our own API served in front-end. I was thinking about few
other solutions, but all of them involves some post processing of document after receiving
last chunk, it would be great to just invoke this:
>    PATCH /database/0519690fc465fc0e9cc0f89fa87973fc/bigfile.dat?_rev=13-c969cb72e5428ca2ccdd191e0cd7bf4b
>    Content-Type: application/octet-string
>    Range: bytes=1200-1300
>    Content-Length: 100
> What do you think about this. Is it theoretically possible.
