To enable Sever-Side-Push in Web-Applications a lot of hacks (aka Comet/Bayeux) have been done in the past. The WebSocket spec fixes that by introducing a bi-directional and full duplex communication channel over a single TCP connection, which can be easily used to extend high-level protocols (such as JMS, AMQP or XMPP) to the browser. This session gives an overview of the WebSocket API and shows how to use with other HTML5 APIs to build powerful and future-proof Web-Applications.
Target Audience: Developers that are interested in the capabilities of WebSocket or want to know how-to bring existing server systems, like JMS or AMQP, to the Web.
