Title: HTTP over UDP for data intensive applications
Authors: Teo, Chou Chun.
Keywords: DRNTU::Engineering
Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: Traditionally HTTP is running over TCP, which provides error control and flow control. However, its throughput is limited by TCP window mechanism. This makes HTTP over TCP ineffective for data-intensive applications (e.g., HTTP video streaming, etc). In this project, it is required to develop a prototype to run HTTP over UDP, which is a connectionless protocol, without error control and flow control mechanisms. This project can be broadly divided and executed in four main tasks. First, we will conduct a Literature Survey to establish what similar published studies that have been done before so as to avoid overlap as well to gather background information and gain comprehensive knowledge that pertains to data transfer over UDP. The second task is to come up with the design plan to help structure and direct the software creation process. Given that this is a software project, following the industry standard, we will produce the Software Development Life Cycle(SDLC) documents, namely the Software Design Plan(refer to Appendix A) and Functional Design Plan(refer to Appendix B) is drafted to provide proper documentation required for software development. Thirdly, we come to the Implementation and Testing which includes comprehensive benchmarks to compare the performance of our application. Finally the results and conclusions will evaluate and sum up this project.
