My only experience with node.js thus far is on my own Ubuntu server running
boys for a social music site ( I was mostly giving and
example. Can't PHP do something like that? I didn't know so I went with
Node.js. I can't imagine it's any harder to port than Ruby is. But I don't
have that area or expertise.

Hello Mike,

Can node.js run under IBM i? Can you give an example of a "dead simple"
web application? I know we've talked about web socket listeners and servers
on the web400 list, but every example put forth had annoying limitations
such as the number of broadcast contexts. For example, a web socket server
could be broadcasting changes to inventory to one set of listeners, or
broadcasting changes to time changes to another set of listeners, but not
service both types of clients simultaneously.

This is a great example of making old technology work with new thinking.
This is dead simple in a web application. A client side JavaScript could be
set to listen for changes from a server side script. I believe this is
where Node.js is best sending events to the client.
