Subject Re: WebSockets with Apache Ignite
Date Tue, 27 Oct 2015 01:33:47 GMT

I think this is a great idea. I wonder if this can be covered by Ignite
providing Node.js integration. To my knowledge, the work was started, but
somehow got put on hold. I think Irina V. got started on it at some point.


Perhaps we could pick this work back up after Ignite 1.5.

My thinking is that once we have the Node.js client, the WebSockets can be
covered by any of the numerous libraries for Node.js.
