This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
In the book "Java Servlet Programming" by Hunter et al they describe how to implement asynchonous callbacks via java RMI.
I have been planning to write a little applet and servlet pair that would allow me to sit at my home office and have my virtual students stay in sync with me becuase this applet I was going to write was going to disperse my current browser URL to their html FRAME and so they would always be on the same web page I am on.
Does firefox still allow this async rmi call back to the browser resident applett with the default security settings? Would I still have to write such a servlet/applet pair? Surely after all these years of determined and tough procrastination someone has already written such a application! I don't even know what to google search for though.
