I noticed that some HTTP download managers support resume operation. I'm just wondering how it's implemented. I do not see get from offset in HTTP protocol. What happens if I do skip for input stream obtained from http url connection?

Have a look at the # RFC 2616: Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1 and scroll down to the section marked "14.16 Content-Range".
