Java WebSocket API handbook

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 ! 

  • Configuration
  • Deployment

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
