CometD is an HTTP event system that uses AJAX push technology, and is an implementation of the Bayeux protocol. It is a scalable way to share information with client Web applications in real time, in ways that foster better scaling through push events, rather than client polling. CometD solves many of the problems encountered when distributing information across the noisy Web.
