Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 51181] Add support for Web Sockets
Date Tue, 06 Sep 2011 23:15:59 GMT

--- Comment #13 from Mark Thomas <> 2011-09-06 23:15:59 UTC ---
It might appear that there hasn't been much progress on this but there has been
a lot going on behind the scenes.

1. The HTTP connectors have been refactored to reduce duplication and
inconsistenceies between them that should make it possible to implement
WebSockets once for all three HTTP connectors rather than once for each
connector. This was long overdue and it took rather a long time to unpick the
various differences that had crept in over the years.

2. I took a look at a SocketIO implementation and I have some initial code but
the API doesn't translate that easily (at least I found it didn't) from
JavaScript to Java. Therefore I'm not convinced at the moment that this is the
right direction to go in.

What would be very useful at this point is an idea of the API users would like
to work with. I can make something up but it would be much better if this was
user driven. Proposals can be attached to this Bugzilla issue.
