Websocket – channels?
This may be a noob question, and I admit that I am a noob when it comes to websockets. With ColdFusion, channels seem to be part of the core but when I research websockets in general, excluding ColdFusion, I cannot find documentation on channels. Are channels part of websockets that I’m not finding or are channels a ColdFusion added layer on top of websockets?
Reason for my question, I have a third-party device that offers a websocket communication option. Reading the device documentation, it all sounds simple enough until you try to align the device with CF as the device has no mention of channels. I’ve done some successful experimentation with AWS WebSocket API and it does not mention channels. What is the source of this mythical channel?
