Comet

Went to a presentation today at JavaOne that discussed Comet. Way back machine moment. It takes me back to a product in the 90's called Netcaster. It was software that "pulled" information from your favorite sources and presented it on your desktop. It failed. Required so much bandwidth the corporate networks were choked.

Zip to 2007 and we now have Comet. Albeit a totally different technology, it enables developers to write web applications that get data pushed from the server when there is an update. Glassfish can enable these type of applications now.

So Comet allows the creation of event driven, interactive and collaborative applications. A great complement to AJAX technology.
