Re: [xml-dev] RE: Web site that emits a continuous stream of XML?

TickerTech whom I pointed you at earlier has a weather feed: http://www.tickertech.com/products/xml/

Looking at the sports feed I see that this is fact the same company (re-branded) that I worked with 15+ years ago, so apparently others have also seen some value in this kind of thing...

Thanks everyone for the excellent feedback.

Someone sent me this message:

        Do a search for pushlets, or alternatively
        I think the generic technology  might be
        called comet. Basically the server sends
        streaming XML or _javascript_, with an
        occasional heartbeat pulse/element to
        keep the connection alive.

That sounded promising. I did a search for "pushlets" and found this site with example pushlets:


Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have a pushlet that emits XML-formatted data.

Is there a web site that emits a continuous stream of XML-formatted time-and-temperature data? That is, when I connect to the web site it returns the root element, a location, and the current time and temperature:

        <Temperature>51 degrees Fahrenheit</Temperature>

One second later the web site sends the second <Weather> element:

        <Temperature>51 degrees Fahrenheit</Temperature>

One second later the web site sends the third <Weather> element:

        <Temperature>51 degrees Fahrenheit</Temperature>

The web site continues to send a <Weather> element every second until I disconnect.

Does such a web site exist?
