Server to Client Communication

P: n/a

I have searched this forum and nothing really answers the question of how you
push data from the server to a client in real time.

I have an application running on the server which recieves messages whenever
they hapen from another application. These messages need to be displayed on a
website in real time. (not a refresh).

How can this be done? Do I use ActiveX?

The solutions I have found are really just browser refreshes.

Thanks for your help.

The reason that browser refreshes are the suggested way is because any web
browser works on the principle that the client requests a web page, and this
data is then transfered and displayed to the client. The web page could then
contain some script that would continously fetch more data from the server
and refresh the page (or portion of it at least).

As far as i know, the only way to stream data would be to use some 3rd party
component to continuously stream data to the client, like an activeX
control, which will need to be installed on the client machine when they
browse your web page.

Hope that helps.
