Domino Websocket now available

***websocket project has been broken out into its own project, on openntf***

I recently posted the latest updates to the webshell-xpages-ext-lib to include components that support browser websockets on Domino/XWork server.  They are available on OpenNTF, and can be installed independently from the rest of the project.  The Domino plugin / component leverages the efforts from the Java-Websocket project (a bare bones websocket api).  Using their API made it surprisingly easy to spawn a server instance from the XPages run-time.  It is not complete, and could use some more enhancements (i.e. queue up a websocket message from a document, maybe a RESTful interface as well).  To try it out follow the instructions websocket-setup.pdf from the download.  The sample application is a simple chat app.  Please let me know how it goes, or if you find any bugs.
