Hi. Does mongrel support 'chunked' transfer encoding ? We are sending images from a J2ME app, but do not seem to be able to read the entire xml message that gets sent from the mobile device. The message is posted to our RoR app running on a mongrel server. Regards, Sergio

I believe mongrel can be used to send chunked responses. I did that with the mongrel-esi server, haven't been keeping it updated but might still be able to refer to that source as a reference... On Thu, Jun 17, 2010 at 12:50 PM, Sergio Lombrico <firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi Sergio, Not for requests, but of course it can generate chunked responses. > We are sending images from a J2ME app, but do not seem to be able to read > the entire xml message that gets sent from the mobile device. The message is > posted to our RoR app running on a mongrel server. <shameless plug(s)> Rainbows! and Zbatery both support chunked requests using the HTTP parser found in Unicorn (which is descended from the Mongrel parser). The ThreadSpawn concurrency model with Rainbows!/Zbatery is similar to Mongrel, and can handle slow clients reasonably well. Both Rainbows! and Zbatery work great on *nix, and Zbatery _may_ work on Win32 as well. Unicorn itself is only designed to run behind nginx, so it is wasteful if you're dealing with slow connections from a J2ME mobile app. I don't remember nginx being able to parse chunked requests, but that may have changed. The added benefit of Rainbows!/Zbatery is they can read and process the chunked request in your app incrementally while it's being uploaded.  http://rainbows.rubyforge.org/  http://zbatery.bogomip.org/ (no, not a typo :)  http://unicorn.bogomips.org/  http://rainbows.rubyforge.org/Rainbows/ThreadSpawn.html </shameless plug(s)>

Hi. Thanks for replying. Unfortunately we need to receive chunked requests sent to a mongrel server. Are there any other alternatives other than WEBrick ? G.
