ColdFusion 10 added support for many HTML5 features including websockets which is a light weight, full-duplex single socket connection over which messages can be sent between client and server. It is the next evolutionary step in web communication compared to Comet and Ajax and provide an enormous reduction in unnecessary network traffic and latency.
In this session we will talk about:
- What are WebSockets
- WebSocket and ColdFusion
- Developing a realtime application with CFWEBSOCKET
- Deploying it on AWS (CF AMI)
- What’s next in ColdFusion 11
