HTML5 WebSocket and Java: JSR 356

The family of HTML5 technologies has pushed the pendulum away from rich client technologies and toward ever-more-capable Web clients running on today’s browsers. In particular, WebSocket attempts to solve the issues and limitations of HTTP for real-time communication.

This session examines the efforts under way to support WebSocket in the Java programming model, from its base-level integration in the Java Servlet and Java EE containers to a new, easy-to-use API and toolset that are destined to become part of the standard Java platform. The attendees will also learn how to develop WebSocket applications using NetBeans, deploy them in GlassFish, and debug using Wireshark and Chrome.
