performance XML Webservice / Remoting?

Hi,

I need to write a VB.NET-application (Windows Forms) that may have a part of
it (re-)implemented as a Webpage for the customers.

I think it can be usefull to create a business Layer with Remoting or a XML
Webservice, and than write my Windows Forms application that uses it. and
than maybe in the future the Webclient.

I have jsut one question: I hate the performance/speed-problems with
web-applications, so I don't want my Windows Forms getting slow using a
Webservice or Remoting.

so my question is: When you use a XML Webservice, odes it slow everything
down just like you would work with a Webpage? Or am I wrong thinkingthis?
and what's the speed-differnece with Remoting? I guess both can be used in
my situation?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Pieter

Ahmed, the thing is that Webservices does xml on the wire and this does have
its side-effects (perf compromise a lil bit) but the scability that you get
with webservices is amazing!!

I would suggest using Remoting in a scenario where there is a small network,
smaller than the internet, like Offices because this is were security does
not matter much ofcourse u need to make sure that authentic users can read
the message but these issues are negligible when u r in a small network
running a firewall.but u cannot neglect these issues when there are people
who like to play around with ur data and like to spoof in ur documents. For
a mass network i would suggest using XML Webservices together with the
WSE2.0 for better and enhanced support for webservices.
