In the mobile world, there are no excuses for any user experience that
isn’t instantaneous, dynamic, and safe.
A cool way to develop these types of apps is with the use of a growing
technology standard, WebSocket. This standard has been around since 2011
and allows you to add nifty real-time features to a mobile app.
Let’s use the Kaazing WebSocket Gateway and build our first real-time
mobile app. Download the JMS Edition of the Gateway to get started.
Included are a collection of Web, native and hybrid JMS demo apps for both
iOS and Android to learn from. But why not just build one yourself?
All of the demo apps involve the same major programming steps (and
model–view–controller pattern). All you have to do is simply import the
Kaazing WebSocket Gateway client libraries and then add the following

Not since the Web began has there been an era of disruption like the one
ushered in by the Internet of Things. An IoT connected world is fast becoming
a reality that promises to link our homes and business and improve
By the year 2020, the number of Things connected to the Internet will be 6X
the number of humans. With the explosive growth of connected things, an IoT
world brings both tremendous risks and enormous opportunities.

Building Rich Internet Components by Jonas Jacobi and John Fallows, published
by Apress. Book is available on fine bookstores and Amazon.
In our previous article - "Rich Internet Components with JavaServer Faces"
(JDJ, Vol. 10, issue 11) - we discussed how JavaServer Faces can fulfill new
presentation requirements without sacrificing application developer
productivity building Rich Internet Applications (RIA). We discussed how JSF

Apica, a performance testing and monitoring company teamed up with Kaazing to
bring performance monitoring to apps using WebSockets. Kaazing customers
moving applications to HTML5 and WebSocket extensions will now be able to
validate response time and function with Apica’s real-browser monitoring to
improve the end-user experience – Press Release.
Apica also published an excellent blog post about the Apica-Kaazing
partnership, and some insight into WebSocket monitoring. The snippet below
discusses the layers you need to think about when it comes to monitoring.

- we discussed how JavaServer Faces can fulfill new presentation requirements
without sacrificing application developer productivity building Rich Internet
Applications (RIA). We discussed how JSF component writers can utilize
technologies, such as AJAX and Mozilla XUL, to provide application developers
with rich, interactive and reusable components.
In order to use AJAX and Mozilla XUL with JSF, component writers have to make
sure to provide any resource files need by these technologies, such as
