Scott,

I looked at this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connectionless_protocol and I see what you are getting at. True connectionless protocols are based on UDP or IP. As soon as you have TCP/IP you have a connection. ok.

So I think what I meant was a protocol that does not have a persistent connection. So a connection that is kept over the lifecyle of the service proxy and is not closed after each remote service invocation.

So R-OSGi, the generic server provider and also XMPP over a XMPP server, they are all holding on to a persistent connection all the time independant of the remote service calls you are making ?

right ?

Hi Jan,

thanks. So that would mean you have a connected socket between the
various spaces all the time. So the point from the discussion with
Scott that I think that this make R-OSGi a connectionoriented provider
and not a connectionless provider. I am not saying this is good or bad
here.


Like with Webservices (say SOAP or any other protocol) over HTTP its
possible to reuse a connected socket but typically you disconnect
after each call and connect for the next one.

Is that the correct assumption Jan ?

So that makes me still wonder if there is an ECF provider currently
available that is connectionless ?

By this definition of connectionless, not currently. So perhaps Riena can/will/should be the first?
