On 21-24 October 2013, HTML5DevConf returned to San Francisco, this time at
the enormous Moscone Center North. As always, the sold-out conference
attracted web developers, architects, business development leads, CTOs, CEOs,
designers, students, QA engineers, technical writers — and many more —
from all over the world. With the move from the Palace Hotel to Moscone
North, the conference also saw a huge increase in attendance with filled
rooms for all ten (yes, 10) tracks. The conference also held three days of
training, all of which sold out weeks before the event.
Kaazing was proud to host a booth on both days of the conference in
Moscone’s famous Exhibit Hall. We showed lots of demos of using WebSockets
and HTML5 to power objects (including a radio controlled truck), super-fast
financial applications, as well as controlling Goo Technologies’ Pearl Boy
demo with Web... (more)
In this example, we look at how real-time Web communications can work well
is a simple drawing app.
If all you use is WebSocket with simple pub-sub messaging, you can already
achieve pretty amazing things with drawing. For example, you can share a
drawing board among multiple browser clients and while viewing each other’s
drawings in real time.
If you add a server-side component to it, you can do some central
coordination and processing. And if on top of that you use a persistent
storage, you can reco... (more)
This is a two-part blog post that discusses HTML5 WebSocket and security. In
this, the first post, I will talk about the security benefits that come from
being HTTP-compatible and the WebSocket standard itself. In the second post
(coming soon) I will highlight some of the extra security capabilities that
Kaazing WebSocket Gateway offers, things that real-world WebSocket
applications will want to be fully secure.
A WebSocket connection starts its life as an HTTP handshake, which then
upgrades in-place to speak the WebSocket wire protocol. As such, many
existing HTTP security mech... (more)
This article is based on, and contains excerpts from, the book Pro JSF:
Building Rich Internet Components by Jonas Jacobi and John Fallows, published
by Apress. Book is now available on fine bookstores and Amazon as
of February 25, 2006.
JavaServer Faces (JSF) standardizes the server-side component model for Web
application development but doesn't standardize the presentation layer at the
browser. In a series of articles we are going to look at how JSF can fulfill
new presentation requirements without sacrificing application developer
productivity building Rich Internet Applicat... (more)
Two visionary Kaazing engineers, David Witherspoon and Prashant Khanal, gave
an exciting presentation at JavaOne this year: JMS, WebSocket, and the
Internet of Things — Controlling Physical Devices on the Real Time Web.
David and Prashant led the audience through the steps of building connected
Things by combining open source hardware, a Raspberry Pi, with real-time Web
communication and messaging, powered by Kaazing.
They started off by demonstrating Kaazing’s remote controlled truck. A
remote member of the team joined the presentation over Skype and used a Web
browser on his s... (more)
