HTTP Pocket Reference (Pocket Reference)by Clinton Wong
Synopses & Reviews
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.The HTTP Pocket Reference not only provides 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).Most people use the Web every day without knowing anything about HTTP, but for those who need to get "beyond the browser," this book is the place to start.
This book provides a solid conceptual foundation of HTTP so Web programmers, administrators, and application developers can concentrate on working effectively. The book serves as a handy, quick reference to each of the headers and status codes used to compose an HTTP transaction.
