I am working in vs2012 and .net 4.5. I have an existing web application that I need to add some functionality to. Here is one of the things I need to do: I login to a web service and, once I have logged in, I need to poll the service for "events" on my web page, ie: url = http://thesite/events
, which returns a json package.
I have done this in a desktop app using a background worker thread in c# and it works just fine, but I'm not sure how to approach this in a asp.net project. any direction appreciated.
