What is stateful and stateless connection? I got to know TCP is stateful connection while HTTP is stateless. Though HTTP is L7 and TCP is L4 protocol and HTTP in turn uses TCP protocol. So how it is going to work? a stateless protocol over stateful protocol.

so if we need to configure a failover mechanism then which protocol is better? stateful or stateless? I really would like to read more about it on how it works. Thanks!
