  • An AMI (Amazon Machine Image)* of this template server is also available as a free public machine image. Simply search for public AMI "WebRocketX" in the us-east-2 (Ohio) region. You should be able to find it listed as "WebRocketX-PHP". It is a Linux based Apache PHP server with the WebRocketX client side javascript libraries already installed. The template contains examples of almost every WebRocketX feature, and can easily be used as a starting platform for a dynamic SPA PHP Web Application. Once you own your own copy, you can copy it to any region you want.
    *Use of the AMI means you implicitly agree to our licensing terms detailed under the download menu.

What is WebRocketX?

WebRocketX is a browser side javascript API that all async calls to the server are made through. It's primary mechanism of updating the page is through DOM insertion of HTML snippets using the innerHTML property. By having a single point of interaction with the server the developer has the following functionality provided by the API.

  • Browser side control of user interaction during the async call
  • Browser side error handling of server side exceptions
  • Browser side view caching
  • Browser side view navigation

Why the X?

WebRocketX is a hybrid. It is a solution halfway between the old world of full page refresh websites and recent JSON JSMVC solutions, like Angular.

  • Like full page architecture, WebRocketX expects layout coming from the server to include data. This is different than JSMVC architecture where data is delivered separately from the layout in JSON objects. However, WebRocketX does support JSON when needed, but is not a JSON centric paradigm.
  • Like JSMVC architecture, WebRocketX is a Single Page web Application (SPA) and relies on AJAX calls to submit data and bring in new views.

Other great things about WebRocketX

Written entirely in javascript, using Jquery as an API to the browser, it will run on all major browsers and even on mobile devices.

Allows a web application developer to easily create a rich user experience using standard HTML and javascript, similar to the experience of using a major desktop operating system such as Apple or Windows. Yet, it is extremely light weight executing a small amount of code, and stores much of the user's state on the browser minimizing the need to communicate with the server.

Provides the web application developer with a structured platform in which to deliver and manage content within the browser. Yet, although it is structured, it still leaves the developer completely free to leverage the power and convenience of standard HTML and style sheets, and to use third party widget libraries.

What WebRocketX is not

WebRocketX is not a server side solution, because its front end (browser) components are not coupled to back end (server) memory components. The only relationship between what is delivered from the server and the WebRocketX framework are some simple conventions for delivery of the HTML to the browser. This decoupled architecture leaves the developer free to use any backend framework they desire such as spring, php, asp, struts, etc. Content is delivered from the server as HTML and sent from WebRocketX as form parameters. It is as simple as that.
