I need to develop an application that can address the following: Customers will request recording of some programs on tape. So the request is saved on a database (actually, it is an Access database, but we are planning for SQL Server at a later stage). The employees are opening a dynamic Web page containing the recording information. I want this to happen: Whenever a record request is posted, a trigger is sent to the client and an update on the employee Web page is done without refresh. Can you please tell me what should be done on the employees' side and on the server side?
On the server-side, you can either create an empty aspx form that processes these specific kind of posts, or you can create a custom IhttpHandler implementation, associate it with a new 'file' extension and process everything inside it. This is the most professional and reusable approach. However, implementing this feature increases network traffic, so you have to evaluate its benefits carefully.
