I'm going to build a web interface to my trading server written in Java. The idea is to have a web page with live options chain where prices/greeks/other stuff is shown for monitoring purposes. I think of embedding Jetty into my java server app and use jQuery to fetch data and show it on a html table. As my server will have only one client I don't have to worry about scaling up. But I would like to keep the bandwidth consumption low. Because there are a lot of data on the options chain it would make sense to update the table incrementally. The problem is that I could not find any example or anything about how to build similar system (except some simple share price tickers). I'm not a web developer so not really aware of the range of technologies to choose from or what's might be already implemented. I would appreciate if anyone has any idea/advice on how to implement this thing the best way. Thanks.
