Hi all, In the most applications developer by you, what is more used? HTTP or Socket? I know HTTP is slower than Socket. When you use Socket, you do a specific protocol for each application? Best Regards
First, you can use any arbitary binary protocol over HTTP. This is not limited to sockets. Second, in many wireless networks, there is no native support for TCP/IP. Sockets are sometimes emulated over HTTP. That makes those sockets slower than HTTP. Third, HTTP is the only protocol mandated by MIDP v1.0. So, if you want your app to be cross-platform. It is safer to use HTTP.
