Why HTTP is preffered over socket connection?

Please tell me why HTTP connections are preferred over socket connection in J2ME application. Although socket connections are faster than Http.

In J2me device fragmentation is a big issue. Actually HTTP is a part of MIDP2.0 and socket connection are optional depending upon phone manufacturer. So if u go for HTTP, you can be sure that all MIDP phones support this but socket could be an issue.

IF you write your application on socket, you also need to give support for http in case a phone doesn't support socket. This is exactly Opera-mini does.

Is this answer your question.
