Could someone please tell me what is a "thin" client and what is a "fat"
The definitions are loose, but basically define where the business logic resides.Quote:>Could someone please tell me what is a "thin" client and what is a "fat"
In a fat client, most of the logic is in the client. This is typical of 2-tier
systems such as PowerBuilder.
In a thin client, only the presentation layer resides in the client. A web
browser is a good example.

to think thin client, think keystrokes and 4k memory total.
to think fat client, think the server can send RPCs to
the client, or the client handles most of the processing.
