Build an enterprise application for a customer with aprox. 100 Clients ???
If you would happen to get the chance to build an enterprise application
for a customer with aprox. 100 Clients (and increasing) which technology
and architecture would you choose. The security policy is pretty strong
so we would have actually only port 80 available. Besides that no deployment
effort on client side is desirable. There is a 100Mbit LAN and this new
application would be deployed on the intranet (internal network).
The GUI of this application should be very rich and fast like win32 applications.
What would you propose in order to fulfil those requirements.
It is an enterprise app so inputing data, printing invoices,
packing lists, reporting, etc
Clients are win xp machines It processes data on the server mainly,
the presentation is on the clients Data is stored in a database
100Mbit has to do with the access speed to the backbone resources
from clients.(only port 80)
Any hints, links and ideas will be highly appreciated
