Three Steps to Build a Killer WebSocket App with JavaFX

As part of my prep for the talk we give at JavaOne 2012, I built a WebSocket app using JavaFX 2.2 front-end with NetBeans 7.2 and the brand new JavaFX Scene Builder 1.0. The tools were a pleasant surprise, they were pretty straight-forward to use. Most of the Oracle tutorials were helpful too, although I couldn’t find signs of an active and extensive JavaFX developer community out there.

With the updated Chrome Dev Tools,  you can now see the WebSocket traffic coming and going to and from your browser without using tools like Wireshark. Here are the simple steps to make the invisible visible: 1. At the time of writing this post (May 8, 2012), you need to get Chrome Canary or a fresh Chromium build. 2. Navigate to the Echo demo, hosted on the websocket.org site. 3. Turn on the Chrome Developer Tools. 4. Click Network, and to... (more)
