I've made some pretty fancy BlazeDS/Flex apps myself, to demonstrate for example that browser gan be notified real time from JMS queue. Had invisible Flash app on otherwise regular HTML page and when message arrived into JMS queue on the server targeting specific client/browser, Flash called javascript function that updated the HTML DOM leaving user with impression that he has realtime and live HTML page.

That however was just a demo and usable ONLY in intranet. So I would not deploy such an app into uncontrolled environment like public internet. First reason would be limited server resources, as every browser would have live TCP connection back to the server.

Such a functionality in public apps however should be implemented with AJAX or some other means to poll the server for updates. There might be more elegant ways but live TCP conection is not one of them. Possible but not feasable.
