  • Hi,

     

    HTML5 Web Sockets represents the next evolution of web communications—a full-duplex, bidirectional communications channel that operates through a single socket over the Web. HTML5 Web Sockets provides a true standard that you can use to build scalable, real-time web applications.

    The WebSocket protocol simplifies much of the complexity around bi-directional web communication and connection management. It is TCP-based protocol.

    It is not just another incremental enhancement to conventional HTTP communications. It represents a revolutionary advance, especially for real-time, event-driven web applications.

    Please refer to http://www.w3.org/TR/websockets/ to learn details about websocket protocol.
