protocol : Java Glossary


Since the phone lines have static and since phone calls mysteriously disconnect from time to time and since, in general, modems have no facilities to handle these problems, we need ways to detect and correct errors in software. There are all sorts of schemes of doing this. When two computers get together by modem, you have to decide on which of these methods (protocols) to use. Unfortunately there is no automatic way of handling this. In descending order of my personal preference, here are some of the protocols:
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol), ZOOMIT, ZMODEM, KERMIT, TELINK, YMODEM, XMODEM, ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange).
The term can be more general, describing the rigid rules by which any two programs communicate.
Protocols commonly used in Java include http: https: TCP/IP UDP (User Datagram Protocol) ftp: rmi: jdbc:.
