Project Description
nComet is a .NET implementation of the Comet (reverse-AJAX push) architecture. This server-side pipeline uses long-lived client-initiated HTTP connections to push messages to the client. Once the client receives a response, it immediately opens another HTTP request.

Initial release

Sample
To run the time sample included:
  • comets.exe time http://localhost/
    • after time, you can add multiple URLs and a timezone, such as "Eastern Standard Time" or "Pacific Standard Time"
      • ex: comets.exe time http://localhost/ http://mycomputer/ncomet/time/ "Eastern Standard Time"
  • In Vista, you must run this sample as administrator, or delegate the HTTP namespace
