Transports for XML Streaming?

I just finished doing an e-commerce web site using Java. I want to make it
so that participants in our buy/sell network can stream us updates (i.e.
list new products or tell us that other things they had listed have been
sold). I want to do this w/XML. My question is, should I hang a socket off
my program that is waiting for XML to be streamed to it or should I make it
so that I have a server-based mailbox that XML files are sent to? What have
other people done for this kind of application?
