    Streaming over Webservices

    David Win Newbie

      hey guys

      Please excuse me if I am sounding naive, I am no SOA expert.

      I need a way to constantly feed data to a client, its almost as if the client was a stock ticker.

      I was wondering if you ever heard of streaming soap over a webservice (or if its actually possible). Is this more of a ESB level paradigm?

      there is a streaming XML parser called STax but you need to open a socket stream in order to get access to the source. However, opening sockets defeats the purpose of a SOA architecture and will cause some firewall issues.

      any information would be greatly apperciated.
