Subject Can a web service generate events via SOAP on HTTP?
Date Mon, 07 Jan 2002 13:06:04 GMT


How can a web service generate events on the fly that are trapped by clients

I'm thinking about pushlets or about opening a separate HTTP connection that
would be reserved for events. The client application would then call the web
service and aks for the next event. The server would answer this request at
the time an event is available or a short timeout has occurred (30 seconds).

My question is : does this make sence and is it feasable with the Apache
SOAP 2.2  toolkit ?

Thanks and BR.
