Task Scheduler API Specification; TCP and UDP Socket API Working Drafts Updated

Author(s) and publish date


The System Applications Working Group published two documents today:

  • A Working Draft of Task Scheduler API Specification. This specification defines an API to schedule a task at a specified time. When the indicated time is reached, the application that scheduled the task will be notified via a functional event on a service worker. A task event will be delivered to a service worker, regardless of whether the application is active on user agent. Applications such as an alarm clock or an auto-updater may utilize this API to perform certain action at a specified time.
  • A Working Draft of TCP and UDP Socket API. This API provides interfaces to raw UDP sockets, TCP Client sockets and TCP Server sockets.
