Hey, One of Sun's sample SCEA questions deals with the properties of HTTPS. The two correct answers according to Sun are that: HTTPS is secure HTTPS is connection based I have tried to verify the connection-based part (I'm assuming Sun is correct) but haven't been able to do so. Does anyone know of a resource on the web that talks about this or the RFC number for HTTPS (if one exists)? Thanks, John

I couldn't find whether HTTP is connection less or connection oriented by going through the two links. What I know is HTTP is stateless. Any info on connection less/oriented? Thanks, Neelima.

What I mean is Info on whether HTTP is connection less or connection oriented not info about connection less/connection oriented.

Hi, I found some more info. HTTP 1.0 is connectionless. HTTP 1.1 has a capability to keep a connection to improve performance. So I guess it can be considered connection-oriented? Also had a discussion about HTTPS on the sockets and internet protocols forum. Hope this info helps. John
