If you're not familiar with WebSockets, then think of it as an upgraded TCP connection, but with clean browser API and a set of convenient abstractions such as built-in message framing, protocol negotiation, bi-directional communication, multiplexing, and more. Broadly speaking there are two parts to WebSocket: the browser API specified by W3C, and the wire protocol defined by IETF (RFC 6455). The book begins with a good overview of each component - if you don't much care for the wire protocol, you can skip right over. Alternatively, if you're a protocol geek (like myself), then you have a great launching point for further research - the book covers just enough to answer all the common questions.
Following the technical introduction, the book dissects three hands-on examples: an XMPP chat implementation layered over WebSockets, a STOMP messaging client, and finally a full blown VNC implementation over WebSockets, which includes hands-on demos and code examples of how to work with binary data, protocols, and all other important WebSocket features. Finally, the book concludes with a good discussion on deployment and security best practices - an area all too often overlooked. Long story short, this book should take you from 0 to 60 with WebSockets, and you'll have fun doing it.
I've wasted a couple of days fiddling with virtualbox on debian-jessie, amd64_bit and can't get it to function.
I downloaded a zip file that appears to be the book wrapped up in a vmware server. Another mess!
How hard would it have been to zip up the example files?
I was hoping that it will be give me more pointers to how we can deploy this technology with challenges around network security etc. It does go at a very high level but would like see more drill down.
