Continuing on the ‘Juggernaut for …’ theme, I’ve created Juggernaut for Flex. It’s is basically a port of the flash version of Juggernaut, except you can attach listeners to connect events etc, and you can edit the channel, port and server information before connecting.
Received data is sent to JavaScript and evaluated (like the current Juggernaut […]

How Juggernaut (server push with a flash socket) works behind the scenes.

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007

Dan Grigsby has written a very thorough and comprehensive piece that takes you through the components of Juggernaut, the concepts behind it and what’s actually happening. I highly recommend it, especially for those who’ve implemented some of the basic Juggernaut examples, and are keen to know more.
Other articles of note on ‘Rails Spikes’ are ‘Simplify […]

Competition for Juggernaut - Shooting Star

Monday, May 7th, 2007

I’ve been monitoring the rubyforge news and spotted this. It’s a comet implementation of Juggernaut (rather than using flash) and they use a native push server (so only for linux). They’ve got a good screencast here (the page is in Japanese, but just scroll down).
A lot of work has been going on with Juggernaut by […]

You shouldn’t really be deploying to xp anyway, but this article may help you to expand that limit.
