Multiplexed XML sockets allow us to scale the single- user live data socket from the previous chapter so that we can accommodate many simultaneous users addressing the same service at the same port address. This is almost invariably a real-world requirement.
XML sockets also enable communication among clients . Though this communication is mediated by the host computer, it can easily achieve the feel and function of peer networking.
The process we have sketched out is just a beginning. The technology and its application can both go much further.
We'll see you online.
