Server Side Events?

October 11, 2012 Vinson Chuong


  • Any experience with HTML5 SSE?

I want to try out HTML5’s Server-Side-Events ( in my Rails 3.2 application. Any experience or thoughts on how to integrate?

The basic flow will be:

  1. User does some action
  2. Browser sends RESTful POST to server
  3. Server then re-broadcast’s event to all other clients using SSE
  4. Clients consume and refresh their views


  • Is it worth the pain to deploy jruby /warbler /tomcat?

A current client is designing their production deploy architecture and there is a lot of resistance to a nginx/unicorn/rails stack.

Is it worth exploring jRuby inside Tomcat?
