This page uses AJAX to poll the server every 60 seconds, retrieve the latest data and update the display. If you can’t wait that long, then you can click the 'Get Updates' button at any time.
Although this particular demo is for a delivery tracking application, the use of SMS to update a database and then incorporate the information into a web based application can be applied to many scenarios.
