Pro&cons of HTTP web service versus FTP interface



We have today a number of file-based interfaces which put a file on the SAP UNIX server and send it via FTP to windows-based applications. One argued today that we should replace the FTP mechanism with some BSP web service which would use the HTTP protocol.

We will also need to keep all the archiving mechanism and the move of unix files between directories.

Is this a really good idea? Pros&cons?

If yes, where should we start to build such Webster? We are running a WAS 620.

Many thanks!
