What are the Enable Push from Server & Enable Dynamic Data Update ?

Hi

What are the Enable Push from Server & Enable Dynamic Data Update in the document properties?

The help document provides only the below information

*****************

Enable Push from ServerMark this check box if the Server should allow graceful document refresh.
Enable Dynamic Data UpdateMark this check box if the Server should allow dynamic updates in a document.

******************

Can anyone explain the practical application of the above with some examples?

Hi,

I believe "Enable Push from Server" enables the server to push refreshed data to the client (AJAX at least, not sure about the plug-in) such that the user doesn't need to initiate a refresh or close and reopen the app.

"Enable Dynamic Data" refers to the ability to dynamically update the data in an app while it is running on the server.  Note that only the data residing in memory on the server is updated, the app itself is not, so if there is a disruption to the server the data will be lost.

Hope this helps.

Rob is correct on the second point "Enable Dynamic Data", but not on the first one.

"Enable Push from Server" This has to be enable if you are using Tunneling and have your document set to enable graceful refresh. The client will keep asking the server if there is any updates available.
