There is a new "tempest" about Web Architecture these days.

In Web 2.0 Communication Layer: from HTTP to Comet to Internet  
Messaging Bus
http://www.coachwei.com/blog/_archives/2006/10/13/2414519.html

	We all know HTTP, the communication layer of Web 1.0. Recently, we
	also started to realize some of the limitations of HTTP. For example,
	HTTP is request/response only and does not support bi-directional
	communication. There are techniques to be employed for enabling
	bi-directional communications on top of HTTP. These techniques are  
being
	called as “comet”. However, comet addresses only a small part of the
	challenge. There are a lot of other challenges to be addressed in order
	for the web communications layer to work well. At Nexaweb, we took a
	fairly systematic look at this issue a few years ago and invented a set
	of techniques to address them. These techniques have been working out
	very well (A lot of customer applications having been depending on  
them,
	such as financial trading applications used by over 20000 traders).  I
	call such a set of techniques “Internet Messaging Bus” (IMB).
