    Content Length for multiple Range requests in Tomcat doesn't

    dev per Newbie

      In tomcat Content Length set in response for range requests for more than one byte ranges is not equal to the sum of content length of all range requests.

      Here are request and response headers:

      GET MYReport_compilation.pdf HTTP/1.1
      Accept: */*
      Range: bytes=1804578-1805257, 1805258-1805277, 1812358-1813377, 1805278-1805597
      Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
      User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
      Host: www.abc.com
      Connection: Keep-Alive
      Cache-Control: no-cache
      Cookie: JSESSIONID=C278016007CA868723C3EA7AD9BB9B23;


      HTTP/1.1 206 Partial Content
      Accept-Ranges: bytes
      ETag: W/"1891110-1067446699000"
      Last-Modified: Wed, 29 Oct 2003 16:58:19 GMT
      Content-Type: multipart/byteranges; boundary=CATALINA_MIME_BOUNDARY
      Content-Length: 2496
      Date: Tue, 29 Nov 2005 18:25:12 GMT
      Server: Apache-Coyote/1.1

      sum of content length of byte ranges=(1805257-1804578)+(1805277-1805258)(1813377-1812358)+(1805597-1805278)=679+19+1019+319 =2036

      but the conetent legth is set as 2496

      The same thing happens with other multiple byte range requests.
      For some multiple byte range response content legth is not set and for some multiple byte range requests contenet-length is not correct
