Need some advices on RSS reader
Hi Guys :),
I need to make desktop based RSS reader (in desktop RAD tools). I know how to fetch RSS feeds and load headlines and contents into my application. Obviously we can ping remote site once in a while to check for new entries in its RSS, but I prefer not doing this and have my server side application be notified about new entries and send notification to my client application for making it ready parse new entries.
I think server side application could be written in PHP and can have some sort of TCP/IP connection (Socket) to desktop application. first of all I need your advices and tips on this theory and if possible, please guide me to the right direction.
What should I do?
What's the best way?
Thanks in Advance.
