Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Transport protocols: HTTP vs. everything else, part of Foundations of Programming: Web Services.
Let's talk about transport protocols.…As I described previously, the…early remote computing architectures predated the…Internet, and used whatever form…of electronic communications were then available.…The earliest forms of EDI, or Electronic Data…Interchange, sent and received messages over phone lines.…First with telex machines and then moving to Bi-directional modems.…By the time of the introduction of XML in 1998, the…internet was being commonplace, and since computers were already being connected to…each other for other purposes It was natural for web services…to develop using one of the protocols developed specifically for the web.…

Running software that manages incoming…and outgoing files, usually located on that server's storage.…FTP is in common use today for moving large files around…the web, but it can also play a role in web services.…A web services that communicates over FTP is said to be asynchronous.…
