SRP DirectConnect Control

Applications often need a way to send a message to end users. The typical approach is to store information somewhere where each station monitors this location. While this “pull” method is useful for offline systems, a “push” method is far better when online systems need an immediate notification. The SRP DirectConnect Control makes this a reality for OpenInsight applications.

Types of Uses

Because it was designed as a generic utility, there are many ways the SRP DirectConnect Control can be used. Consider a true instant messaging service native to the enterprise system. Use it to request a report from a dedicated process server. You can even notify users of an imminent system maintenance…and then log them out if they are not around to get the message.

Simplicity of Design

The SRP DirectConnect Control only has one method, Broadcast, to send out messages to other clients. The SRP Synchronization Server is used to maintain connections with all other SRP DirectConnect controls.

The only event, OnBroadcast, makes it easy for developers to create their own mechanism to receive messages and filter them for specific use. Alternatively, multiple SRP DirectConnect controls can be used to connect to different SRP Synchronization servers in order to create a cluster of private messaging networks.
