Hi folks

I've been doing some simulated and these last days I came across the following statement "HTTPS is stateful protocol."
From what i know, HTTP / HTTPS always been stateless...
Could anyone help me?
Best Regards.

You been doing some simulated? What does that mean?

Could anyone help me?

It might help if you could provide some context. Where did you see this? In what context does it make this claim?

I mean I've done mocks to SCEA part 1...sorry my bad english...
Here is the questions..

Question 12

Status Quo is an emerging B2C company that has a portal through which customers can purchase clay jewelry. Since the order process involves a shopping cart, session management and secure access are required. How would you manage this?

a. Use HTTP since it is a stateful protocol.
b. Use HTTPS since it is a stateful protocol.
c. Use SOAP for state and security management.
d. Use CGI with cookies for state management.
Answer = a.

Well, if (b) is the wrong answer, then that answers your question, doesn't it?
