Conversation with Alessandro – CTO of Lightstreamer

On the fourth day of Developer Summit myself and Veetrag spent some time with Alessandro CTO of Lightstreamer. We talked about comet architecture and its application in various fields. Comment is sometimes referred as reverse AJAX and is a set of technologies used to push the live data from server to http clients.

Lightstreamer is a scalable and reliable Server for pushing live data to Rich Internet Applications. Its based on AJAX-Comet paradigm and pushes the live data to http/flex clients. A free version of Lightstreamer is available for download and can be used evaluation.
