Web Service to client notification

Web Service to client notification

Web Service to client notification


I want to use SOAP (Gsoap) to implement WebService.     
I'm interested in a model, where aside from regular Client(CLI)-> WebService(WS) communication CLI requests some notifications from WS, and then WS asynchronously notifies CLI about some events.
First of all - Is SOAP well suited for such usage?

If so:
As i understand when such notification happens CLI becomes WS and WS must act as a CLI.
Is it possible in gsoap for such WS while in CLI mode to use existing TCP connection (established by CLI to WS request) to travers any potential NAT/Firewall?

Best Regards

RE: Web Service to client notification

I hope not. That would mean that an outoging connection coulb be used for a foreign user to access my computer. If you want to notify a client via WS, the client must implemente the WS and take the appropiate actions on its communications infrastructure to let you in.
