Pain Releaf Already Here with Lightstreamer: Information Streaming without Applets
Milano, Italy -- October
10th, 2003 -- Time is running out before
Microsoft stops support for Java on September
30th 2004. This will inconvenience the use of
Java for push solutions that depend on it to
deliver Real-Time data for trading applications,
giving users the support headache of separately
downloading megabytes of JVM upgrades.
For this reason many providers of Real-Time
trading solutions might be interested in
Lightstreamer as an alternative means to push
data without depending on the use of applets.
Lightstreamer, which i's already actively in use
and available, is a real-time push engine for
data streaming to an HTML browser without
downloading external components (applets,
ActiveX controls or plug ins). It operates over
http/https in a light and efficient manner using
bandwidth control techniques and passes through
any proxy or firewall updating the displayed
HTML page data without an entire page reload.
Lightstreamer was originally developed for the
distribution of financial information and is
particularly suited for online banking and
portal applications that need to provide users
with Real-Time updates , although it can also be
used in any application where a flow of data
needs to be continuously distributed.
