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.

The World Wide Web is growing at an astonishing rate, but to maintain this growth the level of user interactivity must mature along with it. Key to development in this area is the implementation of a universal netcasting protocol, one which standardizes the push/pull technology necessary for users to obtain regularly updated information. Microsoft's Channel Definition Format (CDF) is poised to become the standard for this new technology, and this book does more than cover the new CDF protocol; it shows how to implement it. Written specifically for the web developer/programmer, Michele Jo Petrovsky's Implementing CDF Channels includes instructions for successful implementation of CDF on your web site. Also included are a comprehensive glossary, useful quick references for Netcasting and CDF as well as over 150 helpful illustrations. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Michele Jo Petrovsky has an MS in Computer Information Science from the University of Pittsburgh. She is author of the Microsoft Internet Information Server Sourcebook and DHTML in Action.
