The work done by the Cometd team, the java implementation of the Bayeux Protocol, can now run on top of the Atmosphere Framework. Under the hood, the proper Comet API is as usual detected!
The default implementation uses Jetty 7 Continuation under the hood...but now if you run it on top of the Atmosphere Framework, it will auto detect the container's native Comet API (or use the Servlet 3.0 async if available)! So you can now run the same application using GlassFish, Tomcat 5/6, Jetty 6, WebLogic, JBossWeb and event Tomcat 4 (happy 10 years!)
So for the first time (why? read Matthias here), we have finally a PORTABLE Bayeux protocol implementation! See the official announcement here (and how to try it).
