Subject [Bug 59288] New: Is it possible to add the support of tus protocol within Tomcat?
Date Fri, 08 Apr 2016 03:45:04 GMT

            Bug ID: 59288
           Summary: Is it possible to add the support of tus protocol
                    within Tomcat?
           Product: Tomcat 9
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina

Problem statement: HTTP sucks for file uploads.
You know it. I know it. The problems?

1. No resuming
2. POST multipart/form-data bloats the size of the file due to encoding
3. Slow connections typically time out on large files
4. Any server resets or any other network "burps" on the path from client to
server effectively kills the upload
5. People have had moderate success by tuning their webserver and JSP/Servlet
to accept large POSTs, and in general, it works - but not for everyone and it
suffers from everything previously noted.

tus is a new open protocol for resumable uploads built on HTTP. It offers
simple, cheap and reusable stacks for clients and servers to solve the problem
of unreliable file uploads once and for all. 

Currently, there are only two implementations of server side --- Go and
Node.js. I wish the popular server --- Tomcat which is also my favorite can
also implement this new file transfer protocol in the new release version, too.
