I'm in need of "Server Push" abilities and I've read a lot of articles which pointed me to the direction of Servlets 3.0 which by those articles was supposed to be out with JAVA 6 earlier this year (according to them). Now I tried to do a small Proof Of Concept leaning on this article and started to get errors as obviously those classes don't exist with my Java version (1.6.013) so I saw this post here and I got the Servlets 3.0 API which helped a little but when I looked for the request.startAsync method (for example) my eclipse screamed for an error even though the class specifies that method.
So basically what I'm asking (and sorry for being tedious) is whether or not someone knows what I need to do to get a hold of all the jars I need to get me started on Servlets 3.0? and if someone knows what expected timetables are there for JAVA EE 6 release?
because I can't find any reliable information anywhere which can allow me to prepare
Thank you all very much for even reading up to this point
The GlassFish app server -which will be the reference implementation for Servlets 3.0- probably tracks the standard most closely. The GlassFish site has a roadmap that mentions the various dates involved; I think JEE 6 is due around November.
Thank you so much for you answer.
Indeed I think Glassfish is what I'm looking for.
One of the downsides of JAVA as opposed to the whole Microsoft way of working things is that there are so many components and projects that sometimes I'm just not too sure where to look.
