Using WebSockets APIs in Web Applications - Next Meetup of JUGKarachi

JUGKarachi is organizing its next meetup on January 6, 2014. This time we will be dicussing about Web Sockets usage in web applications with JAVA EE 7.

Web Sockets is a full-duplex, bi-directional communication over the Web. Using Web Sockets, Both the server and client can send data at any time, or even at the same time. Only the data itself is sent, without the overhead of HTTP headers, dramatically reducing bandwidth.

"WebSockets is an advanced technology that makes it possible to open an interactive communication session between the user's browser and a server. With this API, you can send messages to a server and receive event-driven responses without having to poll the server for a reply." MDN

I would recommend to read this article for basic knowledge about WebSockets.

Java EE 7 was launched with many features including support for WebSockets (JSR 356: JavaTM API for WebSocket). Now it's possible to write Java Web applications with websocket capabilities.

Hopefully, This session would be a great start if you are planning to use WebSockets in your next application.

Make the Future Java EE 7 [Pakistan JUG Meetup] in Karachi - Done

Another meetup of Pakistan JUG has been done. Make Future Java EE 7 was topic of this meetup.

Well, It was a haphazard session. Due to fewer confirmations, We'd called off the session but some folks reached the venue so we arranged a meet-up and discussed about Java EE 7. Though attendance was not A-ok but it was a great sitting.

The session was divided into two parts. In first part, JUGKarachi and it's road-map was discussed. 
In Second part, We talked about new features of Java EE 7.

JUGKarachi is a new Java User Group for Karachi. We had done our two sessions in last one quarter, Now we organized our third session on November 25, 2013. Hopefully, We will be doing sessions regularly and will motivate other developers and students to attend forthcoming sessions.

Here, I would like to thank Primatics Financial for supporting and sponsoring this session.

The first session has been scheduled on July 5, 2013 @ 7 pm. Topic would be discussing Java EE 7 features. FYI, Java EE 7 have been launched officially by Oracle on June 12, 2013.

Oh Venue missing? ahhhhhhhhh. Nobody allows stranger to enter in their premises :-) as we are new to Karachi that's why we are facing issue in getting a Venue for FREE. We are trying to reserve some place for session and we are expecting that we would be able to convince some organization to lend us her place for two hours. Meanwhile, if you know some place where we can launch our session, please help us.
