my opinion

Posted by Jody Brown on October 20, 2000 at 3:48 AM


My opinion is that it is a good idea to keep the client-side
code as thin as possible. Downloading and initialising applets
can be time-consuming and resource intensive. There is also an
issue with just how much of the application code is wrapped up
in the applet. Consideration needs to be given on where data
input validation is done. If this is done client-side, this adds
to the applets complexity.

We have been using the servlet/ejb/jsp setup on an n-tier
architecture for a lot of our applications for over a year now
and it has served us well.

Just my humble opinion though.
