I have a large JSON file which consists of xyz records. I'm looking for a way to retrieve parts of the file and have been reading the http-specs on how to define HTTP range-headers in Apache.
The spec mentions that it is possible to define custom-range entities (vs the default 'byte') akin to the tutorial here.
I'm pretty green-eared regarding any apache
httpd.conf modifications, so pretty basic questions:
- can I declare more than one entity (for example byte and record)
- if I declare "record" as an entity and specify a range of records to retrieve, how does apache know "what a record is" = where should I put the logic to tell Apache? that my JSON file consists of records and a record is ... this and that...
Thanks for some insights!
