Default Background application and web services in MDS

Please Login to Remove!

I want to creat a program for notifications based on web services and I want to know if I can do it with MDS instead JDE.
The idea is to run a background thread which acess to web service in every 2 minutes to check if a new notification has been generated. Can I do this in MDS? If the answer is yes, can you give me some tips how to do it?
Thanks, and sorry my bad english.

You cannot create background timer based programs in MDS Runtime Applications produced by the MDS Studio or VS.NET plugin.
