XML & Web services: XML over ????
Has any one implemented XML over FTP? if yes, I am really interested in knowing advantages and disadvantages for doing so.
XML over (secure)FTP is useful if your file sizes are huge (>50MB) otherwise XML over HTTP(S) suffices.
Advantages of FTP increase with size... reliable transmission, performance.
Disadvantages are those of any FTP solution... manageability, maintenance, open port etc.
