The basic model of web and mobile is request and response. The user makes a request, using his or her browser or app to view content (data) by clicking on a link. The server that has the data sends a response back to the user with the text of the document. The request-response model is great for its intended purpose of delivering static, or relatively static data on request, but today, users demand interactive apps that stream event-driven data. This is where the request-response model falls short.
