Server-Sent Events defines a standard technology for server-push notifications. WebSocket attempts to solve the issues and limitations of HTTP for real-time communication by providing a full-duplex communication over a single TCP channel. Together, they bring new opportunities for efficient server-push and peer-to-peer communication, providing the basis for a new generation of interactive and “live” Web applications. This session provides a primer on WebSocket and Server-Sent Events and their supported use cases.
