8:45 - 9:30 Technical Comet Presentation: Overview of Polling, Long Polling, and Streaming, followed by Details Bayuex using Cometd (Kevin Nilson)
The Chronicles of Web Standard: the HTML 5, the Comet and the WebSocket will be an exciting event coving Comet, HTML 5, the latest, and future enhancements to the web. AJAX became popular because it allows a browser to request additional information from the server. One major limitation of AJAX is that the browser must initiate the request for data from the server. Comet solves this problem by allowing the server to push data to the browser at any time. This event will start with a general introduction to Comet, followed by an in depth panel discussion moderated by Kevin Nilson with panelist: John Fallows, Alex Russell, and.. . After the panel Kevin Nilson will give a Technical Comet Presentation which outlines: Overview of Polling, Long Polling, and Streaming, followed by Details Bayuex using Cometd.
What is Web Socket
The HTML5 WebSocket standard defines the future of networking for browser applications, delivering full-duplex, bidirectional text-based communication between browsers and WebSocket servers. The WebSocket connection handshake leverages the HTTP standard to integrate with existing Web infrastructure, such as proxies, firewalls and load balancers, and then upgrades the wire protocol to remove the limitations of the HTTP request-response communication model. With WebSockets, browsers will be able to participate as first-class citizens in networked applications that are typically reserved for desktop clients, such as XMPP (Jabber) chat applications, as well as online gaming and financial trading applications.
Kaazing Enterprise Gateway makes this future promise a reality today by emulating the WebSocket API with two HTTP connections, one for upstream and one for downstream. Kaazing goes further by adding support for binary communication, and delivers various WebSocket protocol clients, including XMPP. When sufficientily capable plug-ins are available, Kaazing instead implements the WebSocket standard precisely, using only a single, full-duplex, bidirectional network connection. Browser applications built using Kaazing Enterprise Gateway today will seemlessly fall forward onto the HTML5 WebSocket implementation from browser vendors in future.
