I would like to build a visualizing software (for some hardware i have built)
In my opinion i have two ways :
1.) Building my own Visual-Server and a Visual-Client. The two communicaten with TCP. And all is fine. (Is better because the Client gets notified if something changes and not to poll every second, the graphics looks better, all in delphi - easier to develop for me)
2.) Building it with HTML. Writeing some components for the server. And some classes for the client. (Is better because of changeing components or classes without change the whole application, independent about the system (linux, win, ...))
What do you think is the best way ?
If its the first - no more questions
Is it the second :
I am useing Delphi 5 Enterprise.
*) What components do i need for server side.
*) Have i to build my own HTTP Server or implements some components into an existing one ?
*) Have the client to ask every second for the Page ? Or can the client be notified if something has changed ?
Be happy for any comment !
