I am trying to solve a problem that needs me to display server logs to client developer using an applet.
I've written a logserver that reads the logfile and spits the output to the socket where my applet is constantly listening.
The problem I am facing is I don't know how to tell the logserver that there is new stuff in the logfile that needs to be read and send to the socket so that Applet can read it and display it.
Can I register some kind of listner to this log file and set up a callback that then reads this file.
