I need to make a program that reads stock market data in real time and shows it to end users.
Currently I have a program which downloads data from my linux web server and shows it to users. It downloads data every 5 min. The data is in form of text files in server. But now I need a way whereby program can reads data every 10 seconds and shows it to end user. This is not possible using text file approach.
Please suggest a method so that data can be streamed from our local pc to webserver from where users can steam it. How can this be achieved ? (for e.g. thru socket program or whatever). Provide me information on the same and a small sample to show its working. Please note that our program runs in VB.NET and we have a normal linux web server. The data exchange should be such that lag should be minimum.
For any clarifications/questions please feel free to pm me.
