The title says it all: I've agreed with O'Reilly Media to write a book about Mobile and Web Messaging.
Almost all my career has been spent developing messaging platforms or clients using messaging. The last few years, I have focused on messaging for Mobile and Web platforms.
- I added STOMP support to HornetQ to be able to send and receive messages from iOS and Android apps.
- I wrote stomp.js to send and receive messages from HTML5 Web Browsers1. This small library is now used by the main Open Source messaging brokers (ActiveMQ, Apollo, RabbitMQ in addition to HornetQ).
This book is the result of all this work and will help mobile and Web developers leverage messaging protocols in their applications.
I plan to introduce messaging protocols and write about STOMP (and most likely MQTT too) in details. The book will come with examples for mobile platforms and Web browsers.
The target release for the book is June 2014.
For a long time, I wanted to write a technical book and it is a chance to do it about an interesting subject and be published by the best editor for programming books. O'Reilly agreed to publish the book under an Open Source license and the source and examples will be hosted on GitHub (when I have some material to show).
I am incredibly excited about this book and look forward to sharing some sample chapters. I just need to start writing them now! :)
