How to get started

The main interface for creating Atmosphere application is called AtmosphereHandler:

To suspend/resume a response or broadcast messages, use:

     * https://atmosphere.dev.java.net/nonav/apidocs/org/atmosphere/cpr/AtmosphereEvent.html

What your application needs in order to use Atmosphere

To bundle Atmosphere inside your web application, download atmosphere-cpr jar file from here:


and put it under WEB-INF/lib

Download the context.xml file (required for Tomcat support):

   * http://is.gd/ngMm

and put it under META-INF/ or your war file

Optionally, you can define you AtmosphereHandler by creating an atmosphere.xml like:

   * http://is.gd/ngM1

under META-INF of you war file

This is optional, as the framework can autodetect your AtmosphereHandler and 
map it using it class's name (see the chat demo for more info).
