I would like to write an application which works over the internet. The application will get a short string from the user(userID,String-10 Bytes), and will update the SQL SRV with this information. There might be many people who will try to update the DB (even Hunderds per minute). My dilma is how to manage the protocol between the client and the server. Should I use DCOM/WINSOCK/ASP. I believe that working with Browser would slower the work, so I prefer DCOM/WINSOCK. How about doing it with VB, would it be fast enough to handle such quantities?
