Best way for a browser to periodically check for changes in a database table?
Posted on 2008-10-22
I have a website where job details are entered into a database. A program from a backend server grabs these details and tries to price it... when this is done it changes the status field of the job to 'priced'. This may take 30sec so the browser needs to continuously check the database for a 'priced' value.
Does anyone know a more effective way of doing this with AJAX for example... or at least point me in the right direction.
