I have a requirement as below:
To upload a number of files from servlet to applet. Total number of files will be huge, i.e. around 700MB. (each file could be around 110MB). Applet is signed.

* Is there any advantage using apache commons http client over plain URLConnection class of[ java ?
* is URLConnection having any specific problems among JDK versions, time out/memory issues etc ??
* Is apache commons http client built on URLConnection internally ? If not, how it makes connection( using scoket etc) ?
Could someone guide me correct direction towards http client vs URLConnection ?
