SOAP and REST – Using GZip with Delphi client

    We are deciding between SOAP and REST. I’ve implemented client applications in Delphi using GZip. It is a very simple implementation and it brings a great result. The larger the volume of data, greater the difference using GZip compression. The bandwidth is also a factor that influences a lot.  Let’s see the implementations.


    REST with GZIP

    Implementation of compression with REST is extremely simple. It’s just a matter of correctly setting the “Compressor” attribute of the  TIDHttp component. I’m using TIdCompressorZLib.

    Code:
    IdHttp := TIdHTTP.Create(nil);
    IdHttp.Compressor := TIdCompressorZLib.Create(IdHttp);
    NOTE: This does not work in Delphi XE2. Access violation occurs. Works in XE3.

    SOAP with GZIP

    Implementation with SOAP is a bit more complicated. For my tests I used the THTTPrio component events.

    Code:
    procedure HTTPRIOHTTPWebNode1BeforePost(const HTTPReqResp: THTTPReqResp; 
      Data: Pointer);
    const
      INTERNET_OPTION_HTTP_DECODING = 65;
      contentEncodingHeader = 'Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate';
    var
      Flag: LongBool;
    begin
      Flag := True;
      HttpAddRequestHeaders(Data, PChar(contentEncodingHeader), 
        Length(contentEncodingHeader), HTTP_ADDREQ_FLAG_ADD);
      InternetSetOption(Data, INTERNET_OPTION_HTTP_DECODING, 
        PChar(@Flag), SizeOf(Flag));
    end;

    Benchmarks

    These tests were done in order to compare the implementation of SOAP and REST.  I used the framework developed by a brazilian programmer, Fabricio Colombo, the Delphi REST Client API. Tests were performed with a bandwidth limited to 512 Kbps. Information is in milliseconds.

    Very nice speed test comparison.
    This GZip seems to be very usefull when sending/receiving large files.
    When using SOAP you could also play with MaxSinglePostSize=15px settings, but you have to open the pipes on the both sides.

    It looks like REST is rising up very quick with new versions of Delphi.

    Expecially Enterprice Mobility Servises (EMS) will significantly influence future REST coding and data handling. (My humble opinion)

    Really useful bechmarks. Quite interesting the difference using SOAP between Delphi and Java, while using REST the results are almost the same. I was trying to decide whether to use REST or SOAP for my upcoming new Delphi project. I'm new to both technologies so in light of the results, REST will be ;)
