Hello everyone, I have a question that may have no answer, but maybe someone can tell me how to accomplish this. Here's the problem. I want to create a web service that pulls data from a database every 4 or 5 minutes. I want to create a function that will return this information anytime it is requested. This way I reduce the number of hits on the database. Is there anyway to do this? or does the web service have to wait for a request before it can do anything? Thanks for the help.
