gzip is good, but should be done on the transporting layer. If you are 
using http then you can use the zip or gzip encoding. The client should 
send an "Accept-Encoding" header with the request, specifying the wanted 
encoding zip or gzip, and the server - if it supports it - sends the 
result as a gzip/zip stream.
