Multiple Downloads at Single http request

Hello,

Can anyone tell me whether We could launch a Multiple Downloads at a single HTTP request, this would be requires when we have to downloads the Multiple file sent over the internet, this will save lot of time for downloads.

Thanks for your support.

Re: Multiple Downloads at Single http request

For Multiple downloading of files you may also use a certain zip file which will store the multiple files and download all of them at a single time this will be reasonable since the Web page's response is stream based and each request will only return a single response stream. And we generally put html stream as output when return web page and return a certain file stream when process file download request. But it's not suitable to put multiple file's stream into one response stream since the client browser is unable to parse it

Re: Multiple Downloads at Single http request

I've have done the things in a following variety of ways.

1. zip all files and download the zip via a form (then use ZZip to decompress and save)

2. stick a whole bunch of form fields on a page for downloading files

3. Stick one form field on a page and continually send page to itself while loading files into a session variable. Include a button on the page for final submission.

But yes, loading multiple files in one pass? Bad idea. Takes a long time, chances of failure are higher and locks up web server resources until the load finishes
