The WebSocket protocol - Draft, HyBi 13

| 0 Comments
Another day, another WebSocket protocol draft... That's probably a little unfair actually. Although there have been several drafts in quick succession over the past few weeks the protocol itself has only changed very slightly. The majority of the changes have simply been to the wording and arrangement of the document. I was fairly cynical about the likely quality of the final RFC when I started looking at the 09 draft and then, in search of clarification, started following the HyBi Working Group's mailing list. As I said at the time, there are a lot of interested parties and they…

So, for example, in my current WebSockets development for The Server Framework I have some tests which test that the correct data is delivered to the client of the API that I'm developing and also test that the API interacts with its buffer allocator correctly and doesn't leak memory. The…
I've just released The WebSockets Option Pack for The Server Framework and I think it's worth running through why the API that I designed ended up as it did. This will probably end up as part of The Server Framework's WebSockets documentation, which is currently a little sparse.…

Version 16 of the draft WebSocket protocol specification was just released and the HyBi mailing list announcement for this version contained the following: Chairs and editors believe that this version is final (before the publication of the RFC). Thank you to everybody who helped to get this completed and for the stimulating discussions on the way. Now feel free to discuss extensions, WebSocket 1.1, etc. :-).
