Subject Feature idea: gzip encoding and XMLRPC
Date Tue, 16 Dec 2003 20:01:28 GMT
I just drew a Google-blank on this topic (so I'm not too hopeful) but I 
thought I'd ask anyway: how easily could I "silently slip in" gzip 
encoding at the HTTP-level underneath XMLRPC-Java?

I've been happily making a verbose XMLRPC protocol, and now am finding 
myself with a bandwidth bottleneck...rather than trying to make my 
XMLRPC more terse, gzipping it would be way more effective. XML 
compresses like a dream!

Reflecting on my request (and the Javadocs), I think this would be a 
subclass of XmlRpcClient (GzipXmlRpcClient)...but before I embark on 
doing that, I thought I'd check the list whether a) it's been done, b) 
it's really easy or hard to do, or c) it shouldn't be done (like my 
sessions with cookies idea).
