I am currently building a Midlet in j2me platform which basically performs
http connections, parses the xml output and persents the results to the end
user. My question concerns the compression that the j2me's implementation
on mobiles has. Lets examine the following scenario: We have an apache server
that has "enabled" compression and on the other side My Midlet. If i construct
http header 'Accept-Encoding' in order to perform the http connection
like ---> httpConn.setRequestProperty("Accept-Encoding","gzip, deflate"),
the InputStream that i will have to parse will be zipped or plain?
Does the j2me implementation will do the "unzip" (transparently for the programmer)
OR i have to do it by my self? Is there another way to achieve compression without
implementing something from my side?
Generally can i use some other ways to 'save' some bandwidth?
Thanks in advance
