Can you please clarify...
are you interested in discussing the HTML push scenario or the SQLite scenario?
Hi, thanks for taking the time to ask for more!
What I am doing is trying to make an alert that shows up when someone logs onto their computer, if there is a new alert to be shown.
I don't have access to anything but an Oracle database, so I am going about it possibly with SQLite I guess. You might have a simpler suggestion.
Originally I thought I could easily program a function to check a file "last update time" and then display the text of the file if it is the newer one.... SO that is the route I thought I would go.
Does that clear it up a little? It's a simple transparent window with JS running to put it into the bottom right corner of the screen and little "ding" when a new message is found in the directory.
So I am thinking my best option would be to use some kind of web service to create and RSS feed that the air desktop application pulls info from. Then when there is a new item in the RSS feed the Alert will be displayed to the users computer, just scroll up from the bottom right.
My question now is... can I have an AIR app just running in the background and when there is a new feed from the web service, can it just scroll up?
Any suggestions on how to go about this?
Can you use AJAX?
