RAP Protocol

An End to JavaScript Evaluation with RAP Protocol?

Jessica Thornsby

After introducing the community to his RAP protocol, Holger Staudacher has posted another blog elaborating on this idea.

He perceives a problem with how the current RAP situation couples the client and the server to each other, meaning that the server sends JavaScript to the client side for evaluation. With the RAP protocol, there wouldn’t be a need for JavaScript within a message, meaning an end to evaluation and, theoretically, easier debugging of messages. He envisions a “synchronizing widget trees” scenario, where each message should be able to hold three different kinds of information: Meta, Device, and Widgets.

Please see the original blog for more information on the synchronisation process and the message content.
