On today's Internet, the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is often
used (some would say abused) to enable asynchronous, "server-
initiated" communication from a server to a client as well as
communication from a client to a server.  This document describes
known issues and best practices related to such "bidirectional HTTP"
applications, focusing on the two most common mechanisms: HTTP long
polling and HTTP streaming.  This document is not an Internet
Standards Track specification; it is published for informational
purposes.
