How does the Client Pull Technique work?

"Client pull" refers to a technique that enables clients such as Web browsers to request pages(pull pages) from the server automatically without user intervention. This is usually done by the use of a refresh header.

Snippet from the servlet code that demonstrates how to set a page to refresh every second:


response in the code above is an instance of the HttpServletResponse class.

Client pull can also be accomplished statically by simply using a meta element in the head section of a HTML document, like this:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5" />

This way the client will pull a page from a server every 5 second.
