I have this strange requirement and I have no idea how best to proceed... So I figured better to ask the experts ;-)
On a client desktop there is two distinct instances of an internet browser (IE6, IE7 or Firefox). Meaning that in the taskbar I see the two browsers.
Now in each browser there is running an application from a web server in which the user was logged into an oracle database (same instance on yet another server).
One web server is running Oracle EAM on Apache and the other is running IIS6 and a custom web application (C# and ASP.Net framework 1.1 soon to be 2.0)
My problem is that I must send a message from one web browser to the other so that information on a page shown in one can be updated if it is changed in the other. I don't think any session, application or server variables can help since I am dealing with two different servers...
How can I send an equivalent of a windows sendmessage() or postmessage() in web setup such as this????
Thanks for any hints, sample code or links... I know it must be pretty easy stuff to do but I have no idea where to start looking!!! ;-)
