Explain TCP and UDP features in detail and compare, Basic Computer Science

Which applications require TCP and why? Also specify which applications require UDP and why?
A4) TCP is also known as connection-oriented: setup required between client and server processes, reliable transport between sending and receiving process, flow control, congestion control, does not provide timing, minimum throughput guarantees, and security.
UDP Connection-less, unreliable data transfer between sending and receiving process, does not provide connection setup, reliability, flow control, congestion control, timing, throughput guarantee, or security— low overhead. Applications that require TCP are: email, Remote terminal access, web, file transfer, whereas UDP is required by: streaming multimedia, internet telephony.
