    Ajax Push/Reverse Ajax?

    Louis Coetzee Apprentice


      I have been looking a bit at implementing some kind of chat room funcitonality in my application using Seam and Ajax. From the Seam docs I see that the Ajax uses polling to contact the server to retrieve updates. I have been wondering if it wont be possible to implement some kind of "Push" from the server side through Seam.

      I know there are a few commercial things out there doing this kind of push e.g.:
      http://www.lightstreamer.com/ and
      http://www.icesoft.com (the Enterprise Edition).

      Would be nice to have this kind of functionality in Seam. Any ideas or suggestions of how to possibly do it ?
