Design question: Use 1.1 or 2.0 Framework for ASP page connecting realtime to database
Posted on 2009-05-11
I've never done ASP pages before, but have been tasked to write a web page. This web page will connect to a memory resident database (TimesTen) to display statistics. The refresh rate will not be less than 10 seconds. I have been programming C# for quite a few years now and will use it as the code behind for the web page. However, I am not familiar with ASP.net.
The server to host this web page current has the 1.1 Framework on it. However, I'm not apposed to putting 2.0 if that is the better solution.
.Net: 1.1 (Will upgrade if necessary)
The page will display statistics in some grid format.
Statistics are limited to a group. This is selectable and comes from DB.
The page must refresh automatically. I would like to minimize the the flicker as much as possible.
Is AJAX a partial solution?
So, from you experts, given these parameters, what would you do? Please do not just blurt out a Framework version. Provide some sort of a idea.
