Web Push technology is maturing at an astonishing rate, with Microsoft incorporating its own Channel Definition Format (CDF) specification into Release 4.0 of its popular Microsoft Internet Explorer Web browser (which commands 50 percent of the market). This book shows Web professionals how to use this hot new spec, both through the proprietary CDF format (built from XML) and through IP Multicasting. Step by step, it covers the fundamentals of netcasting, site structure, subscriptions, parameter-setting, fine-tuning, and handling simple and complex files. Advanced users will especially appreciate the quick reference sections.
