Example text

WebSocket connections always begin with the opening handshake, as that is the only way to initialize the conversation. On the Internet and other unreliable networks, connections can close at any time, so it is not possible to say that connections always end with a closing handshake. Sometimes the underlying TCP socket just closes abruptly. The closing handshake gracefully closes connections, allowing applications to tell the difference between intentionally and accidentally terminated connections.

Example of a WebSocket opening handshake 41 CHAPTER 3 ■ The WebSocket Protocol Figure 3-6 shows the required and optional headers. Some headers are strictly required and must be present and precise for a WebSocket connection to succeed. Other headers in this handshake are optional but allowed because the handshake is an HTTP request and response. After a successful upgrade, the syntax of the connection switches over to the data-framing format used to represent WebSocket messages. Connections will not succeed unless the server responds with the 101 response code, Upgrade header, and Sec-WebSocket-Accept header.

8 Close The client or server is sending a closing handshake to the server or client. 9 Ping The client or server sends a ping to the server or client (see Chapter 8 for more details on using pings and pongs). 10 (hex 0xA) Pong The client or server sends a pong to the server or client (see Chapter 8 for more details on using pings and pongs). With four bits used for opcodes, there can be up to 16 different values. The WebSocket Protocol defines only five opcodes, and the remaining opcodes are reserved for future use in extensions.
