I would like to create a cheat - sheet of mapping the transport of an application from one machine to another - The application is a windows server/ client application with the server communication via PGM multicast protocol and Server client also communicate via TCP.
1.How does the Applicatoin layer speak to windows applications ? Are there different methods or modules that do this?
2.Do all windows applications have a specific type of messaging layer that communicates with the Application layer? I was wondering exactly how the application speaks to the application layer. I am not a developer and hoping I can get the methods that the above is done in simplistic terms.
