Yoav, why are we *encouraging* this absolute misuse of Servlets and JSPs?

I mean, I understand what the original poster wants - to have a page that is 
displaying line by line, one line per second. But that is not HTTP "modus 
operandi" and not what Servlets/JSPs are meant for.

Tomcat correctly buffers the page. OK, that can be turned off, but the browser 
might also decide to "buffer" the output.

If the poster wishes INTERACTIVE or time controlled behaviour, he should use 
Applets, Flash or ActiveX components. This is a road to madness.
