I am involved in developing an application that uses a
central database on a web server to store its data. The
application should run on the client side and access the
database across an Intranet.
We have not decided the programming language to use but
it will probably be either Java or VisualC++. We will have
SQL server 6.5 running on an NT server with IIS.
The application must be able to query the database, process the
results and display appropriate information. So using HTML and
ASP does not seem to do the job. I would like to avoid using HTML
anyway if possible.
What other options are there to connect to the web database and
what programming language would be best suited?
We are just in the specification phase of the project and
before I jump into the deep end I would like to know if anyone
has any experience for this type of application.
Any hints appreciated.
