Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-84) Use socket.io for network communication
Date Mon, 11 Jun 2012 05:53:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-84?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13292651#comment-13292651
] 

Filip Maj commented on CB-84:
-----------------------------

Pat, does the current communication protocol use WebSockets at all? socket.io would solve
this (and would fall back to long-polling XHR when unavailable on a client). It would improve
latency on mobile clients where websockets are supported (iOS, BlackBerry and webOS).

> This is particularly good if we can take advantage of native sockets on ios and / or
there is a socket plugin for phonegap

> An open investigation item I have for socket.io is how they do their cross-site i/o.
Not sure if they depend on CORS or can use some other mechanism. If they can support cross-site
i/o for iOS 3.1.x, it would mean we could actually support iOS 3.1.x in weinre, which we can't
today. Same with some older versions of webOS.
> I think converting to socket.io would be relatively straight-forward, but I wasn't particularly
happy with the Java server impls I saw floating around. At this point, moving to socket.io
would also likely mean moving to node for the server piece at the same time.

> agreed. I think socket.io and node go hand in hand.
