Sending response asynchronously for an HTTP POST Request

I am using embedded web server mongoose.My embedded device runs the web server mongoose and is the server.


I am trying to achieve the following
Questions:
------------
1. Can response to an client HTTP POST request be sent at later part of the executions?
example
-------
Client(requests)------>Server------->Does some processing ------->Server sends multiple responses at different point of execution.


2. Can the Server send responses for the request asynchronously at different point.


How I achieve this ?

1. that depends on what you consider a response. generally for HTTP, you can only send one Response (the response may be chunked, but still only one as a whole) per Request. However, if you used WebSockets you could send anything anytime because you’re not bound to the HTTP.

2. see 1.
