How can I broadcast a message to all logged in users, when my system goes for maintenance. During Maintenance, my Database server will be down and webserver will be up. I am using IIS as webserver, ServletExec as Servlet Engine and JSP. Thanks in Advance, Rajesh Jhaver

you cant - HTTP does not support broadcast. You can deploy such a thing as an applet by polling the server for its status and setting the status to show this. alternatively, you can write your application in such a way that it detects the maintenance and imposes a helpful message if the resource is not available

Rajesh, Can you grab their email addresses when they log in? So or your server can send them an email before you shut down.
