Websocket in GAE

It's christmas : Great day for GAE lovers. Channels are available in GAE ! I have played since yesterday : It's amazing, and well integrated.

The SDK provides a javascript lib for the client side (which simulate websocket). But the client can't write into the socket, and need to call serverside thru ajax ;-(. Only the server side can write into it to push data for clients. APIs are low level, server side needs to maintain its clients, thru datastore.

I can start to implement web game in atomic bombers

EDIT : It seems it's not real websocket (to be able to work on every browsers, or because html5 specs is not really finnished). But it works like. Currently the JS SDK do polling for you ;-(. Hope the real websocket will be available soon !
