Comet: The Web that is Instantly On and Always On

Jonas Jacobi's RIA Session at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, in New York City

If you have not been introduced to the concept of the "Comet programming", then now is the time to become acquainted. Comet is a revolutionary technology that replaces the old request-response driven Web development model and the use of polling. With this new client-server communication technique, developers can now build real-time Web applications that implement a true event-driven model with little need for third-party plug-ins.

But is this a technique for every developer and for every Web application? How easy is it to create a real-time Web application that goes beyond "chat"? What is needed to successfully create and deploy a real-time Web application?

Speaker Bio: Jonas Jacobi is co-founder and chief executive officer of Kaazing Corporation. A native of Sweden, Jonas has worked in the software industry for more than 15 years with a mission to simplify application development. Prior to founding Kaazing, he worked for Oracle for eight years as a Java EE evangelist and product manager responsible for the product management of JavaServer Faces, Oracle ADF Faces and Oracle ADF Faces Rich Client in the Oracle JDeveloper team. As co-founder and CEO of Kaazing, Jonas sets the company's business and product strategy and oversees all aspects of Kaazing's operations and mission to become the world-wide leader in real-time software. He is co-author of the best-selling book, "Pro JSF and Ajax: Building Rich Internet Components," (Apress).
