COMET Server

Apr 7, 2010 at 6:40 PM

Is it possible to use this web server as a COMET server?

Yes. Change the keep-alive timeout to something large.  


How to do the rest depends on if you are using just the http listener, the webserver or the mvc server.

What would you recommend?

Say you just want to create a COMET server and already use IIS for serving the site content (minus the .JS files of course)?

I don't know if IE amongst others allows ajax requests to a different port, since cross domain requests are forbidden.

If ajax requests are allowed to same domain but different port, then running a separate COMET server is possible.

Ok, so would the HTTP Listener or WebServer model be the recommended approach?


Agreed, there is a problem asking for a .JS file from one server and querying another server - which is why I'm assuming that the COMET server would be serving both .JS files and the COMET functionality (which is fine)

I'm just looking for a hint of WebServer VS HTTP Listener

Depends on how many different tasks the COMET server should handle. 

A few: Use HttpListener

Many: Use MvcServer easily to get a logic structure.

Sounds good, I'll start experimenting
