Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-163) replicate attachments without Base64 encoding
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2009 22:46:56 GMT


Adam Kocoloski commented on COUCHDB-163:

I put together an alternative to multipart that uses a separate request for each attachment
in a document.  It could be a good choice for this ticket.  Details are at:

> CouchDB currently replicates attachments by inlining them in the JSON representation
of the document.  This puts a load on the DB in the case of large attachments.  It might be
possible to avoid inlining attachments by
> a) adding a {new_edits, false} equivalent option in the standalone attachment API, or
> b) accepting a multipart format that would allow JSON docs and binary attachments to
be transmitted in one shot, or
> c) something I haven't thought of yet
