MAF and WebSockets - I will describe how it works together. WebSockets
is a protocol providing full-duplex communication channel over a TCP
connection. This channel is interactive (communication is both ways) and
we can send messages from the server to the client (MAF application
running on the device). There is no need to use push notifications,
WebSockets provide JSON support and allow to send complex payload data.
In a way it competes with REST, however REST is different with request
is being initiated by the client. WebSockets data is received
automatically - there is no need to trigger any event by the client.
I have implemented sample MAF application with WebSockets integration, you can download it here - AltaMobileApp_v1.zip. Finance screen in the application contains MAF output text component. This component displays latest data received through WebSockets channel. Server side is listening for live Twitter Stream updates and sends each tweet location over WebSockets to the MAF application. See how it works in this screen recording: Read the complete article here.
