I've just been pleased to learn that WebFlux automatically supports range requests to a request mapping method that returns a Resource:

@RequestMapping(path = "/")
public Resource test() {
	return new ByteArrayResource(new byte[] {'a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f'});
$ curl localhost:8080 -H "Range: bytes=2-4" -i
HTTP/1.1 206 Partial Content
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Type: application/octet-stream
Content-Range: bytes 2-4/6
Content-Length: 3


Unfortunately, if the same controller is implemented using Spring MVC, the full resource content is returned:

$ curl localhost:8080 -H "Range: bytes=2-4" -i
HTTP/1.1 200
Content-Type: application/json
Content-Length: 6
Date: Tue, 18 Jul 2017 13:03:31 GMT


It would be beneficial to Boot 2.0's new actuator endpoint infrastructure if Spring MVC offered the same capabilities as WebFlux here.

Affects: 5.0 RC2
