Technology - Web Development 2 - HTTP Proxies, Cookies, WebDAV & Web Services

Synopsis

We discuss specialised aspects of the HTTP protocol, including proxy servers, reverse proxies to accelerate web servers, the operation of cookies, log files and log file analysis programs. We introduce the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) and others which are based on HTTP, and discuss Web Services - server-to-server techniques which enable the creation of business applications distributed over multiple servers operated by different organisations.

    "As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

    Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

    The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it."

    Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
