I did see that from Mark cade book that https is a stateful protocol.
My question is that let's say i am uploading a file using https and the connection is gone and when the connection revoked will it upload the file from where it left before as it can maintain the state using https..??

To be honest, i never tired that option in any practical project.

But my gut feeling saying no. I dont know why.

Can anyone else has ever tried file uploading on https ?

ok deepak... that is the part i am not clear if the answer is no then what is stateful...?

I did see the old thread discussions about https but that doesn't talk about statefulness while file uploading.

Can anyone throw some light for us.... on stateful property of HTTPS for file uploading.

I do not see how that is possible. Firstly HTTP over SSL still does not mean the connection carries some sort of state. Each HTTP call is still stateless but secure. So for example, let us say you have an application and it needs authentication in order to maintain state. Using SSL does not mean you no longer need authentication and that SSL can maintain the state for you.

Can you quote a few sentences from the book where it says the connection is stateful ? The encryption mechanism chosen is an example of something that is stateful in the connection. Otherwise I do not see what else can be stateful.
