Abstract

Traditionally, web applications have utilized the standard request/response HTTP functionality to provide communication between client and server. As the web has evolved, more interactive abilities have been required, some of which demand push/pull or real-time updates from the server. Over time, various methods have been implemented, such as continuous polling, long polling, and Comet. Each has its pros and cons, and the WebSocket protocol is an attempt to learn from those needs and deficiencies, creating a simpler and more robust way to build interactive applications.
