Jean-Francois Arcand and myself gave a presentation at ApacheCon US 2007 on how to develop real-time rich internet applications using Comet and Apache Derby / Java DB.
You can download the presentation slides here.
With little coding, the web client store service can persist data locally and asynchronously, allowing web applications to perform searches for online and offline chatting and viewing.
The demo was run with the new (early access) Java SE 6 Update N (formerly known as Consumer JRE). I definitely observed improved JRE cold start-up time and the web client store service extension gets installed in a much more convivial way than ever.
It is good to see Java deployment and runtime being improved to faciliate the delivery and usage of Java-based modules onto a web client. I can envision new (Java) services being made available for people to integrate within their web applications.
