Server->Client communication with php/mysql/jquery
Posted on 2010-11-08
Here is what I am trying to make happen:
Anytime there is an update to a certain variable in my database, I would like that new variable to be sent to any client logged into my site and automatically update asynchronously on their page. Is there a way to asynchronously have the client's browser be constantly checking that variable/variables in the database to see if they have changed with PHP/JQuery? What is the best way to handle something like this?
