trigger a notification
Posted on 2006-07-18
Hi, i have a server in vb.net which will monitors a process, once the process is done it will write to the database whether the process is done or not. Currently we are doing this at the client side, get the client to poll the database table to check the status in an infinite loop and update the client's UI to indicate that processing at server side is done. Are there better ways of polling data to check on a status besides reading the database every loop which my manager dont really like. Maybe some form of auto trigger from the sql server or things like this?
