Devoxx 2009 - Day 4: CometD

Yesterday i attended a talk on CometD. The talk started with a littl soccer using SunSPOT's to show the capabilites of CometD on the server side.

Apart from that, there's not much to tell about the talk. It was short. It was not really new. But there was 1 thing to mention: the guy who did the talk gave a very clear but rather disgusting demo to show the difference between polling (AJAX) and long polling (Comet) by swallowing lots and lots of M&M's! He wasn't the most skinny person on this planet and so breathing was already audible during his talking. But after the M&M stunt he was almost breathless.

Yes, polling definitely was really resource consuming... for him!
