Setup up a Push/Pull type applications
Here's my problem. My Web Providor can't support an OracleDB (Needed for various reasons). My local ISP doesn't want server services on their network. Yet I have a server here at home which can support OracleDB.
So what I'm planning is to use my local machine and OracleDB to generate XML/XSL cache pages of my site and push it up to my Web Providor. I have this working on a limited basis and it works great.
The problem is when a user enters something on the website how do I get the data to my local machine. If I send the data from my web providor to home I'd need a server service which my ISP doesn't allow. So my only option is to pull the data, using my local machine, from my Web Providor.
I could setup a cron job to check the site frequently for new data but that seems like a lot of over head. (Not to mention the frequent hits)
Anyone have any ideas?
