The Silicon Valley Web Developer JUG (SV-WEB-JUG) meets on the third Tuesday of the month at Google. Our meetings are always free to attend and open to the general public.

18:30-19:00 Arrive & mingle over food & drinks
19:00-20:30 Enterprise Comet Presentation

Sneaking through the forest of AJAX frameworks is a new technique called Comet, which enables real-time messaging from a Web server to one or more browsers. As framework developers move to support Comet and developers start building their first Comet applications, it is vital for both to describe the messaging payloads consistently.

After a quick introduction to Comet concepts, this session will showcase how the same Java object representation can be used to describe both server and client usage of the payload, and how it is translated to JavaScript in a way that keeps everything consistent. The session will also show how you can develop a rich Internet application in almost exactly the same way as a desktop client application using Java EE APIs, such as Java Messaging Service (JMS).
