Hi guys
I have a web page that displays various informations
that need to be updated/refreshed every minute.
What is the best way to achieve that ?

1- client side : a settimeout in a js script that
triggers a LC script on a remote server via xmlhttp,
and returns xml data that is analyzed and displayed;

2- server side : a cron job triggers the script
every minute and writes the output data in a
specific location on the server; and then the
web page reads that data via a simple LC script
via an xmlhttp request...

I forgot to mention : the data are the same for
anyone connected to the web page.

Thanks in advance.

This seems quite unrelated to the topic you replied to but...

You can put something like this in the <HEAD> of your webpage:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="15">

where 15 is the number of seconds to wait in this example. This assumes the page contains a script which displays the current data every time it's called.
