Certainly in Interbase ;)

One thing you need to be aware about events are that they are more
difficult to implement where you have firewalls between the client and
server applications, or where you need to use a secure tunnel. They
are a good tool for some problems, but not always appropriate. When
you find a good hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Apart from the firewall problems you may encounter, another important
thing you need to remember is that there is a large potential to
overwhelm your server. If you have lots of clients waiting for the
same event, and those clients all immediately request a lot of data
when that particular event fires, you can get into trouble.
