Building an Asynchronous Communication Layer w/ XMPP, Ruby, Javascript

The Integration Zone is brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.  Create app backends instantly with REST APIs and reactive logic using CA Live API Creator.


Although XMPP is most often used as a chat protocol, it can also provide a robust asynchronous communication channel in other application scenarios. In this presentation, we will provide introduction to Strophe.js, XMPP4R, and ejabberd, which are the XMPP components that we use to integrate our device automation framework and living room devices under test. By using these off-the-shelf components, we addressed our needs for getting around internal firewalls, application security (based on SASL), and asynchronous command-response handling.
