We have an admin system for our web site. We review our customers orders, uploads etc regularly, but there's always a time-lag.
Since we're always online, we really want to "push" data or messages to our Windows desktops or web browsers, so that the moment a customer places an order, something pops up on our screens.
Is this so hard to do in .net? What are our options?
You would probably be better off using pull, but at a faster interval. Is the difference between a pull every 10 seconds and a genuine instant push going to matter to you?
Its going to use a lot of resources though, why not look at a more creative solution to the whole problem like automating the order processing and just printing a batch of invoices every hour.
