    WebSocket Protocol Update

    Viswanath Durbha Newbie

      Hi,

       

      WebSocket protocol has been recently updated with some changes to the handshake process and it is backward-incompatible. For example, the stomp-websocket example does not work with the nightly builds of Firefox (3.7) where websocket support has been recently added.

       

      I was wondering if there are plans to update HornetQ to support the newer WebSocket spec. Again, I guess the WebSocket specs are still in flux, so I'm not sure if its a good idea to try and keep up with it at this moment.

       

      But the stomp-websocket chat example captured the imagination of many friends here when I showed them the demo :-). I think there are many real world scenario's where it makes sense for the browser to get real time updates using websockets and messaging.
