Well there are lots of ways to a solution for this. One is AJAX on the client side polling the server for new data. One is something like WebSockets for a permanent connection. For the server side, you could use Spring Social with Spring Integration and in Spring Integration set up a poller to get new data, but then find a way to push like Web Sockets to the client.
