I need to poll the web server that launched the java web start.
Does anybody can throw some light on how can I do this.
Right now I am thinking of:
1) Have a Client thread which polls every specific interval. And Server side open a proxy server listening on a particular socket. More of Socket programming

Instead you can open a HttpURLConnection and analyse a meta file which indicates any changes [as below] perodically in a Thread. Or you can invoke a server side component using HTTP Tunnelling.

Yes I am doing HttpUrlConnection for scheduled polling.
Still there are many ways to do that
Thanks
