As users cast their votes, the server tallies the results and notifies all connected clients using WebORB data push. We used WebORB for .NET for this example, however WebORB for Java could easily fit the bill the as well. We have done several projects where we used Google Maps, Flex and WebORB and it has been rather enjoyable experience. Please pass the URL along and watch the election numbers update automatically.
