- Jun 5, 2007We now have two webvats, the HTML frame or iframe, and the Gears's
worker pool. What we need next is a safe common way to let them
I think that takes the form of some kind of vat manager, which assigns
unique, unguessable IDs to each vat, and routes messages which are
addressed with those IDs. The messages can be represented as JSON
texts, so the messaging will not cause capability leakage.
What other services should the vat manager provide? Should it mark
every message with a return address? Should it provide location
services for vats sharing a common domain, or must such discovery be
done through the server? Should it send disconnection messages when it
sees vats disappear to correspondents of those vats?
