Recently I started hearing more and more buzz about the so-called "Webtop Architecture". Based on what I found so far, it talks about going back to a Swing-based rich client that connects to the J2EE Application Server over the net.
Does anybody have experience/exposure/opinion on this architecture?
Thanks in advance,
Mike. Well, it's doable for sure. Not neccessarily Swing. It could be VB, Delphi, VC++ or any other CORBA or RMI -compatible client either. However, you'll need something that will tunnel your IIOP over HTTP (JProxy(www.jproxy.com) could be the right choice) - firewalls are always a problem, you know. Web Services could be a point to think about as well.
