To update an entity in ASP.NET Web API, PUT request is used and we have to send all the properties even if only a subset have changed means if only one field is updated on the client side, we have to send the entire model back to the server to make an update. It’s not a cool way. PATCH request allows you to send just the modified properties for partial model updates. It reduces complexity in case of bigger tables. Here is a usage example to implement HTTP Patch request in ASP.NET Web API to update data with EF DB First.
In this article, we will implement to download parts of file in parallel to get the complete file faster. It is very useful to download large file and saves a bunch of time. ASP.NET Web API supports byte range requests(available in latest nightly build) with ByteRangeStreamContent class. We will request the ranges of file parts in parallel and merge them back into a single file.
