Is it possible to call client side function from server side code without initial client request?

Atlas is great. I'm using timer to periodically check database changes on server to populate client side controls with new data. Is it possible to do it without a lot of client requests to server which takes a huge useless network traffic? Server should call client side function on all connected clients when, for example, 'database updated' event occurs on server. Thanks.

Hi~ Just for your interest, I think you could have a look at Comet, many web IM like Gmail's embeded Gtalk and are built on this architecture
你好! Just FYI o_O
