I don't even know what a "http socket" is. I had the crazy idea that HTTP was some sort of Protocol.
JavaEE is just a specification, at heart it is just "java" with a pile of APIs bolted around it and a piece of server software to wire it all together. So yeah you can open up a socket; you even have free choice if that is going to be a TCP or an UDP socket, old IO or new IO. The problem is not in opening a socket, the problem is going to be in how you design your application such that you can do it and manage it in the context of a JavaEE container. But you'll run into that sooner or later.
