HTTP is the protocol of the web, and this book will look at HTTP from a web developer’s perspective. We’ll cover resources, messages, cookies, and authentication protocols. We’ll look at how HTTP clients can use persistent and parallel connections to improve performance, and see how the web scales to meet demand using cache headers and proxy servers. By the end of the book you will have the knowledge to build better web applications and web services.
