Basically 3 methods we use under http methods Get, Post and Head. In GET method, the client side information is sent to browser as parameters. These parameters will be encoded with the URL as name value pair. In POST method the information from client is sent to server as part of the message body of http request. The data can also be encrypted to ensure the security. The HEAD method gets only the information about the document, not the document itself. As a less data is transferred, HEAD is much faster than GET.

What are the layers of 3 tire Application?

Presentation Layer – Presentation layer which is the highest layer in the application takes care of the display in the browser. It can communicate with other tiers. Web servers are the main components of presentation tier. Graphical User Interface (GUI) is provided by the presentation layer.

Dynamic Web Server – The program that is run by the web server generates Dynamic content. It is slower compared to static content. Apache, Microsoft IIS are examples of web servers which are commonly used.
