Subject: [Fwd: Re: [Fwd: ICEfaces Ajax URL determination]]

FYI ... one thing I forgot to include in my Ajax writeup was one 
use/requirement that some of these Ajax request rely on "blocking http 
requests" so that push function can (continue to) be supported.  Subbu, 
another consideration to account for?
--- Begin Message ---
Perhaps I should add a bit more from the ICEfaces perspective:

The amount of code actually in the Servlets that ICEfaces makes
use of is not that great, so if there is a natural way to
implement what we need entirely within the Portlet environment,
a port isn't out of the question.  (We are hoping, however,
for as much re-use as possible between the Servlet and Portlet

What is a concern, though, is whether a given Portlet environment
will accommodate the blocking HTTP requests that we use for
Ajax Push, and whether we can hand these requests off to our
separate asynchronous HTTP if need be (this server makes use
of non-blocking I/O to handle large numbers of blocking connections
with a bounded number of threads).  If Portlet environments vary
in their ability to handle blocking HTTP requests, we may be
better off maintaining the separate servlet for the Ajax
