About the Book
The book is what it says it is - a handbook, a quick reference, a fast track guide. It covers the nitty gritty of the Java WebSocket API which is a standard (specification) for building WebSocket applications. It is targeted (primarily) towards Java/Java EE developers and can be used in various capacities
- As a getting started with the Java WebSocket API guide
- You are already well versed with this API and its constructs, but need a quick peek/reference to a specific API, it's usage, nuances etc.
- Maybe you're just curious about what Java has to offer in terms of WebSocket support - feel free to check this out
The first three lessons are meant to get your feet wet
- Warm up
- API Overview
- Programming Model
Then comes the core part which is important from a API usage perspective
- Sending Messages
- Receiving Messages
- WebSocket Client API
The default conventions offered by the WebSocket API can actually hide the details related to Configuration & Deployment, but you should know them anyway !
The book ends with a exploration of how the API integrates with other Java EE specifications as well as a quick peek into the threading details of some of the API constructs
- Tying in with the Java EE Platform: Part I (EJB, CDI) and II (Servlet, Security)
- Lifecycle and Concurrency semantics
It is not meant to be ...
- a generic discourse on WebSocket: it deals with the Java implementation of the WebSocket specification (JSR-356 to be specific)
- a deep dive into the WebSocket RFC
- exploration of other Java based WebSocket APIs/frameworks (e.g. Atmosphere etc.) is not the goal of this book
