Subject Re: refresh JSP webpage when Derby DB is changed
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2010 21:01:54 GMT
There IS a way to push data to the client, and I am using it
successfully right now.

It's called WebSocket and its part of HTML5, but only a few servers
and browsers support it at the moment. Jetty 7 is one such server, and
apparently later versions of WebKit and Gecko support it on the
browser side (im not sure since my WebSocket client is a Java
application which I wrote myself).

Otherwise you can use Bayeux/Cometd to do long polling which simulates
server push (its horridly complex compared to WebSockets depending on
what you want to do with it, but it is much more widely supported)
