||The Realities of Deploying Wireless J2ME Solutions Over Unreliable Networks|
The article was very interesting. However, I'd like to ask the author if there have been any solutions such as compression algorithms sitting between the server and the client PDA, that can help in reducing the network traffic of binary or most importantly, text based data such as XML. A simple compression mechanism, such as zipping would help reduce the size of code. A decompressor code must always be available at the client in that case. The author is right in mentioning that we would have to have more persistent ways of handling requests, since disconnection is a common problem we can expect.
Great article !!!
