Use RTD to Push Data to Excel via Lightstreamer

Real-Time Data (RTD) is a technology introduced in Microsoft Excel starting from version 2002, aimed at replacing DDE for updating spreadsheets in real time.

It is possible to use Lightstreamer to push real-time data through the Internet and then inject it into an Excel spreadsheet via RTD.

We have just released a demo, together with full source code, that shows this possibility.
