People want to build realtime-enabled web apps right now, but WebSockets aren't ready yet. Various web messaging services are being build to address this.
In this talk we'll discuss the ingredients of realtime web apps, why third-party web messaging services aren't going to help in complex scenarios, and why generalizing messaging problems is not going to work within the web context.
We'll also present the SockJS project - our attempt to help building realtime web apps. As opposed to other solutions, SockJS is not a magical black box; instead it's a robust and portable building block for web applications.
