Please look into the below line of code segments (it is documented for easy understanding)

var webSocket;

//Step 1: Instantiate the WebSocket object
var webSocket = new WebSocket('ws://');

//check webSocket is not 'undefined and null'

//Step 2: Check if the websocket is in OPEN state and henceforth the communication can be establish
if(webSocket.readyState == webSocket.OPEN){

//Step 3: Client send a message to the server once the connection opens
webSocket.send("Message from Client");

//Step 4: Server sends a response back to the client
webSocket.onmessage = function(e){
console.log("Message from Server" +;
