HTML 5, WebSocket, and Comet - The Future of the Web

Kaazing's John Fallows & Jonas Jacobi to Present at SYS-CON's AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo

There are several innovations within the HTML 5 specification that will forever change the direction of the Web, and one in particular - WebSocket - that will revolutionize the way we develop and deploy Web applications. Until now, bi-directional browser communication has been an elusive goal of the Comet community, usually achieved with an assortment of hacks. However, with recent updates to the HTML 5 specification, developers can now use a full-duplex communications channel that operates over a single socket.

The HTML 5 WebSocket enables communication from the browser to any TCP-based back-end service (for example, JMS, JMX, IMAP, Jabber, and so on). For example, it is now possible to avoid convoluted architectures by simply channeling certain protocols to the browser over HTTP and Web applications can now be deployed without the need for a traditional Web server.

This session will provide an in-depth look into the use of HTML 5 WebSocket and the techniques and technologies required to build Comet applications with it. Additionally, the speakers will discuss the trade-offs between emerging de jure standards (such as HTML 5's WebSocket) and de facto standards such as the Bayeux protocol. Furthermore, the session will cover the server and network architecture that powers an event-driven Web application. Attendees will be introduced to the technologies and requirements for delivering scalable, real-time Comet Web applications, and, most importantly, to the pitfalls they may face in the process.

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
