thin versus fat clients
Posted on 2000-03-21
I'm asking a question here that could be answered with the contents of various books. I know some of those books; I ask this question here for an up-to-date answer that's Delphi related.
Consider an application that works with one central database (100MB) and 100+ users. What would be 'good'; a very thin client / application on the server (application server), or better fat applications on all clients and only database-layer on server / (business rules / stored procedures?) Is DCOM the most advisable technic for this?
Okee... ...I'll check my books, but I would like some expert advise! Points will be doubled for very complete info.
