push server : Java Glossary


push server
A server than selects information for you and preloads it onto your local machine, and keeps it up to date so that you can begin reading immediately. PointCast is a well known push service. HotBot from hotwire takes another approach. In contrast, with a pull service, the local machine does the selecting logic.
