[ANeff] Bug for: WebSocket open/closeConnection() return undefined instead of boolean

WebSocket's openConnection() and closeConnection() should return true upon successful completion (as documented). Currently, they return undefined upon successful completion.

1) go to:
2) see description for CloseConnection (should be 'closeConnection' btw) contains: "Returns true on successful completion."
3) see note beneath function table contains: "When you use these functions, a boolean value indicating the status of the call is returned." (#3342977 contains suggested new wording for this note)
4) see description for openConnection is missing the "Returns true on successful completion."

In summary, the openConnection() and closeConnection() should return boolean (just like all the other functions, and just like the doc says) so that user knows the call completed successfully.
