Allow Web Data Connectors to connect to a data source 'live'

This will allow us to connect to near real time web services.

There are lot of these around, specially in the finance vertical.

Reduces time for access to changed data and updates on the dashboard


Current Work Around:

Call the web service with a WDC Wrapper.

Web Service churns request and writes to Database

Web Service sends an email to user saying their data is ready (We did not see any other way of alerting the user?)

Users then connect to the database via live query and retrieves result


Next full request of WDC will get the data to refresh user's view


:Ben Lower and team, your guidance on a better path is deeply appreciated
