HTTP just doesn't work that way. Aside from that, even if you could serialize a network connection (which you can't) it won't help you do what you want to do.

If you want to use HTTP, the best easily achievable goal is to use Keep-alive on the connection (which AFAIK any decent webserver should support / suggest / do already by default, but it may help to test it and/or increase the timeout. This won't help you with the authentication part, since HTTP doesn't guarantee that single connections serve only a single session - it's even possible that in between proxies could "bundle" multiple sessions over a single connection (though I don't know of any proxy that does that).

In any case, IME if authentication/reconnection takes such a large part of your system, you're either doing it wrong, or you're not doing anything very interesting.

If you're really that pressed for processing power, switch to a protocol that's a little less designed for single request/response actions and more designed for long-term connections. Like STOMP. Of course, that means ditching a pure web based approach...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
