Cool ParcelXxx() vs. ParcelXxxGZip()

Is there a recommendation on when to use the GZip version of the methods vs. the regular ones?

What is the advantage of using the GZip? is there a disadvantage to using it?

Good question. The short answer is that there is no recommondation.

GZip was included as EDI data, especially large EDI data files are very compressable. It seems like that would create a huge advantage whem moving very large transactions such as catalogs.

The tradeoff is processing power on both ends to compress/decompress. We have not done any studies. Perhaps you might want to try and let me know what you find.

Off hand at today's internet speeds, I would probably not consider worrying about compression until the file was at least 500K, maybe not even till 1MB.

We do have a customer using the GZip in a Silverlight application, perhaps they can comment.
