Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-882) Cross mobile socket support
Date Thu, 07 Jun 2012 18:56:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-882?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13291211#comment-13291211

Patrick Mueller commented on CB-882:
------------------------------------

If there's something in the Cordova android platform preventing socket.io from working, and
it's something we can "fix", I'd like to see that - as a separate issue of course.

I've not been keeping up-to-date with socket.io and WebSocket enough to know often they are
changing, etc.

Is the current version of WebSocket going to be around for a while?  Is everyone implementing
to it?  I think Safari and Chrome are shipping different protocol implementations for WebSocket,
right now, for instance.  I'd want to wait till the spec is pretty well "cooked" before investing
in supporting this.

And it should probably be prototyped as a separate plugin for now anyway.  At https://github.com/phonegap/phonegap-plugins
or elsewhere, before being considered becoming part of the base.

> I tested the use of socket.io in an iOS app and I was able to successfully communicate
back and forth from mobile to desktop.  All I did was grab the same socket.io script hosted
from the node.js server (as a quick test)... Of course, this may be cool and all, but I'm
not sure how "cross mobile" it is.
> How hard will it be to create native socket support for most (or all) devices so developers
can talk to socket.io servers (or any other service) natively without including the socket.io
client scripts?
