Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-841) Support WebSockets in continuous changes feeds
Date Mon, 14 Mar 2011 18:45:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-841?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13006566#comment-13006566

Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-841:
-------------------------------------------

Not to be a negative nancy, but I'd be fairly suspect of actually providing websocket support
until browser vendors decide that its going to be an actual spec. For instance, the caniuse
report [1] is less than exciting. There's also the security issue [2] that's been floating
around and to my knowledge has not been addressed by the spec yet. Not to mention there are
similar competing specs that do similar things [3].

> Just wanted to put this on the roadmap: it would be nice if continuous changes feeds
(and maybe some other things in CouchDB, not sure) could support WebSockets. WebSockets are
an emerging standard (there's no final spec yet) with implementations in both recent Chrome
and Firefox (beta) releases that allows servers to push information to the browser without
having to do polling (or longpolling).
