Subject [users@httpd] .NET development for apache webserver?
Date Fri, 28 Nov 2003 12:20:32 GMT

I work for a company that delivers services utilising a product developed in 
house with a proprietry dev language.  The backend is using informix c-isam 
databases and a wrapper application running on linux.  The front end is a 
wondows app that lets clients manipulate their data through basic 
connections to the back end.

The boss recently decided that we needed to revamp the fornt end application 
which at present is delivered by citrix farm via nfuse.   He wants to make 
it entirely wapi.  I like this plan,  I am pretty familiar with both IIS and 
apache servers and feel I could make a decent fist of setting up a web farm 
on either platform.

To do this,  it makes sense to also rebuild the back end engine entirely,  
probably shift the databases to PostGre (or maybe Oracle).

The company's parent has an Indian .Net dev house that they'll offer to us.  
This would mean a relatively fast turnaround time, but I fear that it has 
the downside of forcing us to use ASP website and MSSQL database server,  
meaning a huge outlay in MS licensing.

Is it possible for a .NET dev house to  develop web pages rather than ASP 
pages?  I would like some sort of platform independance with the product,  
if possible, I guess, and I am looking for resources that have information 
on how that can be accomplished.  Especially with .NET.
