Subject Re: Transfer-encoding type when using streaming

You mean transfer-encoding=chunked, for example? That depends on the
webserver. For example, I do hope that Tomcat would send a chunked
response in that case. On the other hand, the builtin webserver of
XML-RPC (which is httpd 1.0 only) will never send a chunked response.

What is the reason you are asking? Personally, I do not care about the
response being chunked or not. All client applications that I know of
are happy with it.
