The WebSocket protocol was standardized by the IETF as RFC 6455 in 2011, and the WebSocket API in Web IDL is being standardized by the W3C.

 

One of our dev teams has selected WebSockets as the protocol hanlder for one of our applications. it is an event driven messaging model, which supports non-sequential message handling.

 

send msg1

send msg2

send msg3

receive msg2

receive msg1

receive msg3

 

how can I make a simulator that supports that mechanism?  the data protocol is JSON, so that is easy.

 

the standard model will work for the data protocol part (json) and the wire protocol part (sockets). but the out of order responses is the part we need to add on

 

websockets is a 5 year old standard.
