Hi,

I have a website developed using java/servlets. This site gets input from user.

And, now when an administrator logs in, I want to get the live user names printed on admin page when a new user gets added.

Typically, I would like to update the content of my HTML/JSP page without refreshing when a DB INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE occurs.

Can anyone help me to achieve this using Java/Servlets? if not please provide me an alternate solution.

Thanks

Hi,

The above references gives me to get the data using AJAX. But, what I am looking for is that my page needs to be updated with the latest added users while the administrator is logged in and is in any of the page with admin rights.

Will be having a <DIV> to display the details of the newly added users.

I want this DIV to be updated whenever a new user is added or existing user update his details WITHOUT SENDING REQUEST TO SERVER explicitly.

Thanks.

Hi!

Every browser has its own session to interact with the server. And data between a session and server is isolated from other sessions for security purposes. To be able to retrieve data from other sessions it has either to be put into a database or you could use an Application Object to hold some data that may be visible to all/some sessions. Be careful what data you put there.
http://www.java2s.com/Code/Java/JSP/UsingtheApplicationObject.htm

To retrieve the data you will need to send a request to the server in some way either through a complete page refresh or AJAX where you can update part of the page as needed.

Hi Tomas,

You mentioned to retrieve we need to send a request to server, I agree with you but my requirement is some thing similar to a page that refreshes automatically when an update to a value is done.

Something similar to a live cricket score update or a stock exchange webpage update where the latest will be updated without sending any request explicitly but the particular div/section  will be updated automatically,

Hope this gives u more idea on the requirement

Thanks

Hi!

Using AJAX you can update only a part of a page e.g. div section where the page or event in the page sends request to the server and updates only the desired section of the page. For the end user is looks like the page is updated without him/her actually hitting a button/link/ page reload.

Regards,

If your familiar with jQuery  ajax call its even easy. What you should do is after the db operation is success, you can send it via xml format or JSON send along with the response. And capture the required data from the ajax response and in jquery success method reconstruct your DIV and update the information.
