Real-time, Aware Web Apps with XMPP and HTML
25 Jul 2010
I am spending time each week learning something new about HTML5 and brainstorming ways it can be applied in my every day business world.
Here are two areas I am researching:
- Using HTML 5 Web SQL Database and HTML5 Web Storage to make web applications run more efficiently by running them locally.
- Using HTML 5 Web Sockets and HTML 5 Server-Sent Events to allow my web applications to be real-time and aware as Internet is available.
. Using HTML 5 Web Sockets
you can interface with any XMPP
server and create a full-duplex communications channel within the web browser.
With all these improvements to HTML, HTML 5 seems like a logical choice for web and mobile application development.
