WebSocket & JSON Hack Day

During this evening we will be exploring two new Java APIs that will be introduced into JavaEE 7 standards (scheduled to be released in Q2 this year):

1.The new web protocol WebSocket offers an efficient 2 way communications between the client and the server. This protocol is expected to be of great importance in web development over the next few years. A new Java API will be introduced with JSR 356 covering a Java based server and client.

2.JSON is a light weight data format used usually to exchange data between the front and the back end of a web application. Most social media sites provide update feeds in JSON format. A new API for JSON processing will be introduced with JSR 353 into the JavaEE platform.

The evening will start with a presentation about APIs. We will also have some code using the APIs to handle live market data using yahoo finance and live social media feeds.

We will be using the Reference Implementation (RI) of these standards provided in GlassFish 4.

Please bring your laptop with you.

The number of places is limited. So if you confirmed attending and your circumstances changed please update your status.
