comment What is a Servlet Container and how to install one?
Yes, but if you are at the VPS stage, then presumably you are at the "if it breaks we have real problems" stage.

comment What is a Servlet Container and how to install one?
If I was at the stage where I was paying for a VPS (rather than an internal development system) then I'd want someone who knew what they were doing on the team rather then depending on my learning as I went along.

comment Tool to download only selective pages / particular page from a document !
If we continue to use the example of ODT files - that would require that masses of information be duplicated. It would prevent zip compression being used. So in an effort to save bandwidth when downloading part of a file, you end up making the entire file much, much larger. This is counterproductive.

"The servers job is to just to go the particular offset and start sending the data with its knowledge in file formats." - as mentioned, there is no offset. The formats are NOT linear. The data needed to build any given fragment of a file is usually scattered throughout the file (unless it is a format designed explicitly for network seeking, such as most video formats used on the Internet).

"Can you share a link that shows few file formats" - google.co.uk/search?q=jpeg%20specification (and replace 'jpeg' with a variety of other formats that interest you)

"Can you paste the format here so that it could be visualized" — frankly, no. After decompressing it, a minimal odt is 44k, that is way too much to paste. OOO is free. You can make a file, unzip it and look for yourself. The format is probably documented on the OOO website.

comment How can I set up a local host with a reasonable name, different than “localhost:80”?
Given that the OP is using a Mac OS X package, I don't think they'll find a hosts file there.

But it shows that your question is based on a false premise.

There is lots of server software that runs on Macs - but most of it is FOSS that runs on any *nix.
