With this release, Grizzly now provides support for both sides of the WebSocket wire. Both GlassFish 3.1.2 and of course 4.0 will offer support for the final version of server-side WebSocket. if you're eager to use the technology in your application, then you should try out recent builds of 3.1.2 and let us know how things work for you.
