These code files accompany the book The Definitive Guide to HTML5 WebSocket (Apress, 2013), available on Amazon.

Use the files in this repository to build the following:

  • ch2-websocket-api: a simple WebSocket client that establishes a WebSocket connection with a WebSocket echo server (websocket.org)
  • ch3-websocket-protocol: a WebSocket client that uses the WebSocket protocol, API, and a WebSocket echo server
  • ch4-xmpp-over-ws: a chat client that communicates over the Web using XMPP over WebSocket
  • ch5-stomp-over-ws: rock-paper-scissors game with Apache ActiveMQ using STOMP over WebSocket
  • ch6-vnc-over-ws: a VNC client using RFB over WebSocket and a VNC server

The book also comes with a VirtualBox VM (about 2GB). If you want to get a feel for what's in the VM, see these screencasts.
