Hi, could you post a link to the binary protocol that Richard has mentioned, the one that is more efficient than Protocol Buffers?

I think that was Hessian that Richard was talking about - http://hessian.caucho.com - from Caucho, the makers of Resin.

So the deal is that GPB uses IDL, which means it sends no type info. But it also does not appear to handle cyclical dependencies. Both of these (IDL + cyclical) count against it for our project. Hessian does send type, but only once.
