Cities orbited where you may listen to the Grizzly: Prague: Grizzly and Comet Stockholm: Grizzly SIP Paris: Comet and JRuby Antwerp (Javapolis): Grizzly and Comet. If you are a member of a Java Users Group and interested to have a talk on Grizzly and its extensions, feel free to ping me at jeanfrancois dot...
Over the last couple of months, I've learned and worked on the SIP protocol (which share a lot of concepts with Comet). With the help of Ericsson's engineers, we have ported their NIO based SIP implementation to use Grizzly 1.5 and up. The result is quite amazing. With only two classes, Grizzly can now support the SIP protocol over TCP, UDP and TLS! TLS wasn't supported at all before the use of...
My Comet related blogs recently passed more that 55000 hits. It's probably low for a lot of blogger, but since Comet is fairly new, I consider this as a good sign of the growing importance of Comet. And the count is still growing fast....The first one of the series (aka The Grizzly Comet or why space shuttle Discovery launch was delayed) is by far my biggest read blog (much more than the one...
Since day one of Grizzly Comet, I'm getting requests on how to use DWR's Reverse Ajax with the monster. Well, I did my lesson and looked at the DWR's code (quite good) and submitted a patch. Most probably the next official release will contains Grizzly Comet support (Read below to download a preview)! The result is quite impressive! Since DWR already supports Jetty Continuation, it wasn't that...
Jetty 6.1.6 has been released, and that release can now run using Grizzly 1.6.1. 6.1.6 - 1.6.1...7.7.7...a new monster is born! Greg recently announced the availability of Jetty 6.1.6. As usual, the Jetty community is doing great job of delivering a very nice product. Among the new features, I've recently ported Grizzly support in Jetty, removing the dependencies of Grizzly 1.0.x and instead...
After 3 years, I'm really happy to be back as a speaker at the annual ApacheCon conference! Today I've presented the Grizzly Comet (using Grizzlet) in front of a crowded room and guess what, event the iPhone demo running Grizzly Comet worked well! Curious to see what we have presented? I've uploaded the slides here. Unfortunately (for now .. the framework code will soon be available here :-)),...
After months of inactivities, I've updated the Grizzly's Bayeux implementation (previously called gCometd) to reflect the current 1.0 specification. I'm no longer using the gCometd name based on a note I've read from the cometd-dev team, who recommended to not use their name. But first, thanks to the community for the great feedback I got from the initial Bayeux implementation in Grizzly. Wow the...
