ADF 12c: Using WebSockets to implement client to client push (in a scalable manner) by Amis

WebLogic 12c (12.1.2) has support for WebSockets. ADF 12c runs on WebLogic 12c. Therefore, we should be able to leverage that WebSockets support in an ADF application. And indeed we can, as this article describes. It will explain the creation of a simple application - the SlidePresenter - that allows users to select an image from a carousel. As soon as they make the selection, all currently connected clients are synchronized, showing the same slide:


The application uses a WebSocket endpoint - an object that acts as the server end for web socket connections. Each browser session connects to the end point and starts a new websocket connection. Whenever a slide is selected, the WebSocket endpoint is informed (on the server side) and broadcasts the slide selection to all connected clients. A brief demo of what this looks like is shown here.
