Building a Simple Peer-to-Peer WebSocket App – Part 2

In Part 1, we looked at the completed application, which we’ll start building here. Before we get started with actual development, let’s take a look at the starting application. Open a new browser tab or window with the starting application in JSFiddle. The starting app is as simple as it gets. First, take a look at the HTML code, then read the explanations below the code snippet. Kaazing WebSocket Tutorial - JMS
