Historically, Web apps are only updated when the user refreshes or moves to a new page. The problem is that while the user is on the page, the data could have changed on the server, thus the user is often seeing outdated information. JVM-based apps can solve this issue using real-time push, which updates the data in real time. In the case of apps like Google Docs, this means instant collaboration.

Users expect apps to be amazing, yet most developers are locked into programming models that prevent them from building apps that make users say “wow!”  An amazing app is rich and interactive, and able to scale to handle the high volumes of data that users demand. Derek Henninger, vice president of engineering at Typesafe, outlines five ways developers can break the cycle of mundane, lackluster, and sometimes downright horrible apps.
