Lightstreamer Embraces .NET and adds AJAX-Comet to
Milan, Italy -- August 25th 2006 -- Lightstreamer, the high-performance AJAX-Comet engine, has been extended with the .NET Technology Toolkit and now provides an option for feed integration by writing Lightstreamer Adapters with Microsoft .NET languages.
Lightstreamer is a push engine conceived for live
data distribution to any kind of client application (thin,
thick, mobile, etc.). In the case of thin clients, it
relies on the AJAX-Comet paradigm to stream real-time
data to any HTML browser without the need to download or
install anything on the client. The optimized use of
HTTP together with bandwidth control and adaptive
streaming techniques results in a robust, efficient and
highly scalable data delivery.
"The core of Lightstreamer Server is a high performance and very robust Java component, with six years of maturity" said Alessandro Alinone, CTO of Lightstreamer. "Now the market has asked us to open up Lightstreamer interfaces to .NET technology. We have responded to these requests on three levels: server-side integration, thick client-side integration, thin ATLAS client-side integration."
On the client side, an on-line demo has been released
which shows an ATLAS (Microsoft’s AJAX toolkit)
front-end updated in real-time by Lightstreamer (https://www.lightstreamer.com/ajaxdemos),
this shows how it is possible to extend AJAX with the
