Up-to-the-minute data on a web page

Hi all,
I haven't done web development in 8 years, need help.

I have a database (DB2).
I will put together a web page that pulls data from one database table.

Is there a way (or ways) to refresh the list of records on the client every time a new one is written into the table?
Is it possible to refresh just the list (datagrid or whatever) and not the whole page?

Thank you

In simple terms  you will want to do an ajax refresh of the selected portion of data/div http://ajaxpatterns.org/Periodic_Refresh.
