rss is a pull technology, there is no push involved.

Re: RSS

thx Simon, but can you correct for me:
- the rss can get data from server through httpconnection
- the rss can run and get data while the application is closed
- the rss can connect to a specific link

Re: RSS

rss itself is a specific xml format (more or less). see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS

an app can do all the things you mention.

Re: RSS

httpconnection using an alternate entry point to pull data when the application is closed? or something else, and if it's an alternate entry point how to know if there is a new data in the server to pull it?
