Streaming API

The Force.com Streaming API lets you expose a near real-time stream of data from the Force.com platform. Administrators can create topics, to which applications can subscribe, receiving asynchronous notifications of changes to data in Force.com, via the Bayeux Protocol. Streaming data made simple, secure, and scalable.
