Objective 3. Server / Browser Notification Techniques and Java Applets.
The detection of a triggering event needs to initiate a set of predefined
actions which in most cases will require that the Web Server get control
of a computer or terminal at one or more sites in order to display messages
or get more information.
- Set up mechanisms that will reverse the normal flow of the server just
responding to the browser, so that the server will be able to request the
browser's attention and send it a file. This control will be necessary
whenever a triggering event takes place. We will have to compare overall
performance of keeping the socket to the Browser open, versus giving the
Browser instructions to reload the document in a specified interval so
we will know when that time is expired we will again have an open socket.
- Develop Java Applets that are needed to facilitate requests for data
entry and to allow users to filter, reorder or combine action lists.
