Happy? :-) Where do you get those numbers from? Results naturally vary a lot according to the data set, but given a sufficiently smart scheme compression of the structural information tends to revolve around 2% of the original size (x20 factor) quite easily. With some SOAP messages it can get really stupid on some requests with factors over 200. And then the rest varies according to the data/structure ratio, whether zlib is an option or not, whether some things can be optimised away, etc. but 50% would seem highly unusual to me. -- Robin Berjon <robin.berjon@e...> Research Engineer, Expway http://expway.fr/ 7FC0 6F5F D864 EFB8 08CE 8E74 58E6 D5DB 4889 2488
