Hi Rohan,

This is a challenging question to answer.
What is the difference between thin client and thick client?
Whcih type of code should be written in thin and which in thick ?


Because it is also a commercial isue and therefore everywhere ysed where the
sales man could use it (especialy if the human client did not know what it
was of course).

But the most easy to tell is that a thin client uses small bandwidth to
connect to a server. (Can work on slow connections)

You can say every thing done as a webform is thinclient.

But there are more posibilities.

You have things that companies like Citrix Metaframe are offering where you
can use old Dos programs over the network, acting as the classic mainframe
process only submitting keystrokes and monitor changes.

You have the webservices, which only give needed information to the client.

A lot of posibilities you see.

I hope this did give a little understanding?
