You can run many TCP/IP program by HTTP tunneling,
The reason is that HTTP program can pass everywhere in the world, such as pass firewall etc. Usually another tcp/ip program couldn't pass firewall, but now these program can run by HTTP tunneling.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
