Java EE 7: Accessing WebSockets From Plain Java

Java EE 7 also comes with a standardized WebSockets client (part of JSR-356), which can be directly used in Java applications like Swing, JavaFX or Unit Tests to access remote WebSockets.

With a little help of Java EE 7, both sides can be implemented in < 9 mins :-):

The problem is, if you want to have a web browser as a client over the Internet, such server won't be of much use. You have to deal with all fallbacks, proxies etc.

I will work on an application that will use web sockets in the near future. Can you recommend any framework "above" web sockets that would do all the plumbing? At the moment we are leaning towards Spring WebSockets (with STOMP and SockJS), we have tested Atmosphere (poor experience), can you recommend anything else?
