The HyperText Transfer Protocol, or HTTP, is the backbone of the World Wide Web. HTTP is the language that each Web browser (or other Web client) uses to communicate with servers around the world. All Web programmers, administrators, and application developers need to be familiar with HTTP in order to work effectively. This text not only offers a solid conceptual foundation of HTTP, it also serves as a quick reference to each of the headers and status codes that comprise an HTTP transaction. The book starts with a tutorial of HTTP, but then explains the client request and server responses in more detail, and gives a thorough technical explanation of more advanced features of HTTP (such as persistent connections and caching).
Clinton Wong authored Web Client Programming, published by O'Reilly & Associates in 1997. Clinton works on network and security related projects in the Silicon Valley bay area.
