Actually reverse ajax is for interacting with the servlet while processing. when any process is going on it communicate with the client. But am not gettting the implementation part. Please Help me..

It's a (to my mind anyway) fairly badly named technique using long HTTP connections allow a conversation between the server and client. Have a read of this for some back ground.

Sounds something like server-push to me. Probably for web WebSockets are best, a feature that should be supported in coming HTML5. And currently you can use Comet as Paul already told.
