I am building a web-applications using orion/ms-sql server.
I have a bunch of binary files.
I want the client to be able to download multiple files with a single click.
What i mean by a "single click" is that a request arrives to my servlet from the client. I process the request and want to send the client three to four files in a single response.
No this doesnot happen through a browser. There is a VB application on the client side which sends the request to my servlet and should recieve the files sent to it by the servlet.
An approx diag. is given below:
| VB client | --------------> | my servlet | (this is trivial)
| VB client | <-------------- | my servlet |
(multiple files in a SINGLE response)
Is this possible at all? If not Why??
How do i accomplish it? Example pseudo-code will be a lot of help.
Will MultiPartResponse be able to handel it? I am using Orielly classes for multiple uploads in a single request.
How do i download multiple files in a single response?
I hope i have explained my problem. Please feel free to ask questions.
Thank you a lot in advance.
