Mix of web and client server technics: is this correct?
In web development is it possible to mix web development and client server techniques. I mean is it possible to have web GUIs where are are using a web server and have other GUIs using Client Server technique in the same application? If it's feasable how is the performance of such application?
someone suggested this after considering quantity of data to display in front end; it seems that web GUIs don't display a lot of quantity of information in a same time
apart from the question making not-much-sense, it is up to you how you display the data. i generally advice that nothing be done on the client side, because it is wild and uncontrolled space.
personally, i wouldnt mix the two, but places where it comes in handy are sites like an applet that draws a map (client side - www.viamichelin.com) versus sites that draw the map at the server end(www.streetmap.co.uk)
streetmap is the site i use, but viamichelin is slicker in the user interface
is that a response to my question? I don't understand a connection with my question.
