server - client communication

Hello all,
I am working on a project using java server side technologies. In the application, currently the client program polls the server every 30 seconds to get the latest messages. However due to the large number of browser clients and also due to the fact the each client on a average gets about 10 new messages a day, the current system poses a large overhead. An alternative RMI based solution having the server push the messages to the client was not used as every client had to install a java plugin, which needs to be changed whenever teh Server java version changes. In this regard, i would like your suggestions on any alternative ways of getting the server to push the messages to browser clients as an when the new messages arrive.
Thanks for your time.
Raj
