Subject [jira] Commented: (HTTPCLIENT-973) Websocket support
Date Tue, 16 Nov 2010 22:07:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-973?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12932677#action_12932677

Florian Moga commented on HTTPCLIENT-973:

Hi John,

The idea of the Monsoon project started from this same jira on HC :) I started to follow the
discussions that are taking place on the IETF HyBi working group and to search for tools/frameworks
that might come in handy. I recently started Monsoon as an Apache Lab in order to experiment
what a websocket implementation implies. 

At the moment, the project is in a phase where I created an initial design and I'm implementing
a Java client. The primary goals of the project would be to support the various versions of
IETF drafts (both client and server) as they evolve and offer feedback to the IETF working
group. If things go well, having multiple language support and support for various protocols
over websockets would be the long term goals.

Regarding the graduation from the Labs area, both the Incubator and HC subproject look like
good options. I strongly believe that the HC community would have a great impact on Monsoon
as they have valuable experience with this type of project. 

Being in the labs area, Monsoon doesn't have a dedicated mailing list so I will share my contact
information in case anyone else bumps into this jira as well (fmoga at apache dot org). I'm
also planning to be available on a dedicated freenode channel as much as possible (#monsoon).

It's great seeing your interest and your help would be very much welcome given your experience
on this topic.

>            Reporter: Erik Martino Hansen
>             Fix For: Future
> Websocket are designed for browser use but I see useful use cases in a java client as
> - java clients for existing websites where changes are pushed to clients using websockets
> - use of websockets to tunnel through firewalls
> - put all communication behind single port on servlet engine.
> A good example on emerging use is websocket+stomp (http://jmesnil.net/stomp-websocket/doc/,
> so I believe hc should support websocket clients.
