WebSockets Connector Version 1.0
Anypoint Connector for WebSockets (WebSockets Connector) includes these integration capabilities:
- Establishes bidirectional and full-duplex communication between a server and client
- Implements server push notifications
- Seamlessly works on top of an existing HTTP infrastructure
- Avoids the need for clients to regularly poll the server for new data
A web socket is a bidirectional, TCP connection between a client and server that is kept open until the app closes it. With WebSockets, an app uses HTTP to make an initial connection. The connection then gets upgraded to a TCP socket-based connection.
