This session examines the efforts with JSR 356 to support WebSocket in the Java programming model, from its base-level integration in the Java Servlet and Java EE 7 containers to a new, easy-to-use API and tool set that is part of the standard enterprise Java platform.
The family of HTML5 technologies has pushed the pendulum away from thin client technologies and toward ever-more-capable Web clients running on today’s browsers. In particular, WebSocket brings new opportunities for efficient peer-to-peer communication, providing the basis for a new generation of interactive and “live” Web applications. JSR 356 brings these capabilities to server-side Java developers.
The session is a deep dive into JSR 356 including some demos.
