I am creating a web application where I access a database on a SQL
server machine from local networked PC's via Javascript and HTML.
Unfortunately, Microsoft does not allow the ado intervace to fire
events back using Javascript or VBScript. I am trying to figure out how
to notifiy each client that is connected to the server whenever the
database changes. What I think might work well is to have a client
activeX component built with Python embedded in the html page that
receives event notification from a server component embedded in an ASP
page or maybe an HTML I don't know yet. At any rate, Can I create a COM
server / client component set with Python?
