by Kris ZypApril 16th, 2008

In the comments of my proposal for native Comet support in browsers, Stu Charlton pointed me to an excellent paper on extending REST [23 MB pdf] to support subscriptions, routing, and decentralization. The author of the paper is Dr. Rohit Khare, a co-founder of KnowNow and certainly one of the pioneers of Comet. The paper provides a great theoretical foundation for our efforts towards more powerful Comet architectures, and highlights the power of leveraging HTTP capabilities in advancing two-way communication [powerpoint].
