hello, i've written a servlet that sends a certain number of messages. but, in the servlet response, i want it to be able to write a message to the screen each time a message is sent. So my question is, how do I automatically reload a page with a new value for a servlet. Thanks.
For true push from server to browser you can implement an applet that opens a ServerSocket and registers the IP & port with the app server. We use this to push messages to selected subsets of users, eg everyone in some site or some product support group. It's fairly tricky, but lets the server control who gets what with no polling from the browser. [ March 29, 2005: Message edited by: Stan James ]
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
