Before we dive into learning about the WebSocket protocol and API I first want to spend a little time going through some of problems that face real-time web applications and how the WebSocket spec aims to solve them.
This paradigm went unchallenged for a number of years but with the introduction of AJAX around many people started to explore the possibilities of making connections between a client and server bidirectional. Web applications had grown up a lot and were now consuming more data than ever before.
The biggest thing holding them back was the traditional HTTP model of client initiated transactions. To overcome this a number of different strategies were devised to allow servers to push data to the client. One of the most popular of these strategies was long-polling. This involves keeping an HTTP connection open until the server has some data to push down to the client.
The problem with all of these solutions is that they carry the overhead of HTTP. Every time you make an HTTP request a bunch of headers and cookie data are transferred to the server. This can add up to a reasonably large amount of data that needs to be transferred, which in turn increases latency.
What we really need is a way of creating a persistent, low latency connection that can support transactions initiated by either the client or server. This is exactly what WebSockets provide and in this post you are going to learn all about how to use them in your own applications. How WebSockets Work WebSockets provide a persistent connection between a client and server that both parties can use to start sending data at any time.
The client establishes a WebSocket connection through a process known as the WebSocket handshake.
This process starts with the client sending a regular HTTP request to the server. An Upgrade header is included in this request that informs the server that the client wishes to establish a WebSocket connection. Here is a simplified example of the initial request headers.
WebSocket URLs use the ws scheme. If the server supports the WebSocket protocol, it agrees to the upgrade and communicates this through an Upgrade header in the response.
Wed, 16 Oct At this point either party can starting sending data. With WebSockets you can transfer as much data as you like without incurring the overhead associated with traditional HTTP requests.
Data is transferred through a WebSocket as messages, each of which consists of one or more frames containing the data you are sending the payload. In order to ensure the message can be properly reconstructed when it reaches the client each frame is prefixed with bytes of data about the payload.
Using this frame-based messaging system helps to reduce the amount of non-payload data that is transferred, leading to significant reductions in latency. Before we dive into the details of the API you first need to set up a few files for your demo.
Next up create a file called app. To begin with you are going to learn how to create a new WebSocket connection. Creating WebSocket connections is really simple.
