I am trying to create a 'hit-counter' of sorts and would like to know how confluence handles client downloads (server-side) when a link on a page is clicked. The counter is intended as a way of tracking how many time a piece of in-house software (a tarball linked to a page) is downloaded by customers.
More specifically my question is:
How does the confluence application know the following when a link in a page is clicked:
For instance, is one of the servlet processes that is always waiting for such a request to come from any link in the running tomcat instance?
Or something more like a download server routine running?
I would like to further clarify that I am asking this:
Does confluence implement anything like a download manager to handle serving files that maybe embedded by way of a link?
Does clicking on an embedded link simply load the URL into the clients browser using default browser behavior?
