Multi-Protocol Support

Stefan Tilkov,

Simon Fell on supporting multiple protocols for your (Internet Web) services:

If you’re going to expose your service through multiple protocols then I really think that should it should be done in such as way as to take full advantage of the features of each protocol.

I couldn’t agree more; all this “equal treatment for all protocols” BS has become somewhat of an architecture smell (similarly to a code smell) to me.
