WebSockets, an emerging specification being standardized by W3C and IETF, will enable web browsers as well as client applications to open a bi-directional, full-duplex communication channel with a remote host. In this session you will explore the scenarios that will be available to HTML5 developers in the near future and you will learn more about the low level details of the APIs and protocol, including its benefits over the traditional long polling approach. The HTML5 Labs team will walk you through the implementation details and source code behind the client and server components of the Web Sockets prototype and will share their firsthand experience in working with the new standard.
