The architecture of protocol independence

By | 2004/11/11

Well I was hoping somebody would take an actual kick at the can in response to my challenge, but I suppose a promise is better than nothing. 8-)

Ok then, I’ll offer my opinion. I don’t think it’s possible (to describe protocol independence as a constraint), because I believe that the choice to be protocol independent is an implementation decision without implication for the properties of the architecture in use. The decision to be protocol independent or not is therefore primarily one of how best to integrate with the existing Web and Internet.
