    Specific Question #4 App Type



    In the January 2001 issue of VBPJ, Jeff Hadfield says:

    "I recently asked a representative sample of you to tell me
    how much Web development you're doing, and a full 96
    percent of you are doinf some kind of Web-related
    development."

    Q. Do you think that's an accurate statistic?

    Q. Do you fall into the 96% or the 4%?

    Q. If you are having to develop both web based and fat client
    apps, are you building them both on the same architecture,
    or do you approach them each in different ways?

    I think it's probably a bit on the high side. more like 75-80%. But that's
    just my opinion. No hard facts here.

    I'm in the 4% (though we're starting to look at web stuff, most likely,
    that'll be somebody else.)

    Everything I do uses a similiar architecture. My team shares code
    dramatically. (about 80% code shared, the last time I ran my stats.)

    I think the "some kind" and "Web-related" terms give enough leeway to make
    it 'accurate'. See me

    > Q. Do you fall into the 96% or the 4%?


    If a few tiny moonlight ASP/ MS Access projects count as Web-related
    development, then I fall in the 96%. Honestly, who of us hasn't at least
    expiremented with ASP, or some other Web-type stuff?

    I'm just beginning to build some new systems using n-tier versus 2-tier. I'm
    hoping to successfully be able to use a common business-tier to serve both
    browser-based clients and thin Win32 clients. I say hoping, because I have
    many, many questions as to just how well that works in reality with a
    real-world, complex problem.

    Yeah, I noticed the rather open nature of the question.
    It's amazing what impressive statistics you can get if
    you ask the right questions. I'm surprised that as much
    as 4% haven't done any html/asp

    Well that's what this group is for. You might findhowever that
    consensus is a little elusive. There are just so many ways
    of doing things that there's always room for discussion.

    Yeah, I've noticed!! But, so far this is the most helpful (for me) ng from
    devx.

    I've started to reply a dozen different times to the various threads only to
    get distracted by the next. Anyways, time to move on to keep my replies
    on-topic.
