If you have not been introduced to the concept of the “Comet programming,” then now is the time to become acquainted with Ajax’s second coming. Comet is a revolutionary development technique that rids the Web of the traditional request-response paradigm. With this new client-server communication technique, the tried-and-true “click” will no longer drive content deliver in your applications, instead content will be both server and user initiated, enabling an event driven model for development that opens the doors to delivery of real-time applications over the Web without the need for third-party plug-ins.
In this session we will dispel many of the mysteries behind Comet, and introduce you to the core concepts necessary to master this revolutionary development technique. We will introduce you to client-side techniques such as forever frames, XHR streaming/long-polling, dynamic script tag long-polling, and multi-part XHR.
