Servlet 3.1 introduces a number of new features including HTTP upgrade support and non-blocking IO to the Servlet developer. These new features offer an enormous potential to developers but they need to be used with care. In this presentation, Mark Thomas will discuss how he used these Servlet 3.1 features (and some Servlet 3.0 features) to implement WebSocket support for Apache Tomcat. Along the way, the WebSocket implementation hit a number of issues including variations in non-blocking styles, requirements for blocking IO, problems decoding UTF-8 and handling of generics types and for each issue Mark will describe the issue and how it was solved for Tomcat's WebSocket implementation.
