XMLHttpRequest and ActiveMQ Streamlets


(hopefully there are less than three words that you don't understand in the title of this post;-)

James Strachan talks about web streaming with ActiveMQ Streamlets, a way cool combination of RESTful access to a JMS message queue on the server side, and a simple client-side javascript library based on XMLHttpRequest.

Have a look at the chat example. /me loves simple powerful tools!

So that's a bunch of different tools combined, but the result is a very simple way to stream live data to web pages, in a fairly client-portable way (assuming modern browsers are used).

Great work!
