Grizzly Comet and IceFaces driving your presentation slides
By alexismp on Nov 29, 2007
Interesting Comet use-cases seem to be popping up on a regular basis. This time around IceFaces' Ted is showcasing the WebMC sample application to host a slide presentation over the internet. You can host your own infrastructure (maybe a great new feature for java.net) and check a demonstration here.
In the latest version of this fully-documented-but-not-yet-final software, the interesting part is the use of Grizzly Comet to scale to a very large number of connections without killing the server with threads (ARP at work here). Unfortunately, I don't believe Skype scales as well in the number of simultaneous connections. Does anyone have a suggestion for an alternate solution for a one-to-many broadcast? A streaming solution maybe...
