I need to implement push technology in my application. I need to display data on the web page as it gets inserted in the database in real time. I am using ASP.NET MVC with IBM Informix as backend database. I am trying to figure out if it is possible to use signalr with Informix? Does SirnalR have any dependency on the backend database? Or could it be used with any database?

What I have tried:

I don't know if this has any basis but someone told me that there is a service that is run by the backend database which sends a signal whenever there is a new record in the table and this service is probably not a feature of IBM informix.

Signal R[^] is just used for Real time communication between Server (ASP.NET) and Client(Web Browser). It has nothing to do with the database.
You can use any Database engine as backend.

@karthik I understand that SignalR is just used for real time communication between server and client browser but then how would my application know whenever there is a new entry in the database? Currently there is a java service that writes data to my table. How would my MVC application know when there is new record in the database?

Hi Jim
if you are using SQL Server, we have SQLDependency class for monitoring the data changes in DB.
check the below links

you need to explore the same for the database which you are using.

As I have mentioned in my question, I am not using ms sql server. I am using informix. And I have not been able to find anything on signalr with informix.
