How web application differs from desktop application?
« on: August 04, 2013, 12:42:05 AM »
Most of the time we don't understand the basic differences between desktop and web application. Many people think that web application needs internet or LAN connection but desktop application need not these. This is totally a wrong conception. Actually for a desktop application we have to install the exe file to all of the computers that are needed for that application. But for an web application we have to host the application on a server and other computers just access the application from the server. In desktop application all the computers must have to be configured as required by the application but in web application only server machine must have to be configured.
