Is ARP Connection oriented or connectionless?

Is ARP Connection oriented or connectionless?

(OP)
Is ARP Connection oriented or connectionless? It uses TCP, but does that consider it connection oriented?
In the same sense would the following be connectionless too: HTTP, SMTP, SNMP, POP3, Frame Relay?

RE: Is ARP Connection oriented or connectionless?

My understanding is that TCP by definition is connection-oriented. Although I believe an ARP request is connectionless as there is no acknowledgement process. UDP would be connectionless as it is send and forget protocol.

Connection-oriented protocol services are network services, that provide acknowledgment after successful delivery, and automatic repeat request functions in case of missing data or detected bit-errors. ATM, Frame Relay and MPLS are examples of connection-oriented, unreliable protocol.
