Recommendations for Front End with Oracle on Windows 2003 back end

P: n/a
Hi All,

My company develops Baggage Sortation systems for Airports. We have our
sortation application running, which is basically a hot standby system with
two machines - One Main, one Standby. The application runs on Windows 2003
server, and consists of several processes, with an Oracle database. The
server application code is mainly written in Visual C++ with MFC and the
system communicates with the external plant and the Oracle database. The
bulk of the data ends up being stored in Oracle.

We have an old thick client front end built with Visual C++ and MFC and some
..NET code.
We have full MSDN and access to all Microsofts product set - Visual Studio
My question is a general one and comes two fold :

1. What would be the 'best' choice of languages and technology to develop a
new Thick Client front end?

2. What would be the 'best' choice of languages and technology to develop a
new Thin Client front end?

(We were thinking maybe Visual C# and ASP as an option for the thin client?)

Any recommendations for direction and sample / examples would be much

Hi Dave,

If you're developing a data app, I suggest you use Visual C# on a WinForm
app for thick client. You can use Visual C# and ASP.NET for a thin client.
