Thursday, September 28th, 2006p>Manuel Lemos has written a post about
the details and challenges of an AJAX COMET implementation in PHP.
The article describes an approach used to implement highly responsive AJAX applications using the COMET approach, and how it can be implemented in PHP.
It also discusses how HTTP compression and chunking affect AJAX response delays, as well aspects that may influence the choice between Apache 1.3.x with mod_gzip versus Apache 2.x with mod_deflate for AJAX COMET applications.
Community Question: Are any of the PHPers out there doing COMET? If so, do you have anything to add about the experience?
