I just completed the GWT tutorial StockWatcher on my Ubuntu 12.04 machine using the IDE Eclipse.
The second part of the tutorial implements an asynchronous call back but what I want to do is move the timer to the server side to make it completely asynchronous. But I don't quite see the way to do this.
Will I need to start a thread on the server side for the timer?. I'm pretty much a novice at web pages, css, and servers.
