Java would be a much more appropriate tool for this, and I suspect you
have confused the two.   To do it in Javascript would be pretty messy,
and probably not done often enough to recognize the particular coding
idiom used.  For Javascript, you would probably have to maintain a hidden
frame, and periodically reload that frame from the server, then copy the
data into the ticker tape window, whereas Java would just establish a single
TCP connection and accept continuous data from it.

Appropriate technology would be a simple telnet connection, of course!

Better than Javascript, and another reason why it would be unlikely, is
using the pseudo HTTP Refresh header.
