Subject Re: Struts in Desktop Application
Date Sun, 21 Aug 2005 14:17:38 GMT
Gregoire-

Personally I prefer developing Internet applications so you can store the 
main body logic or processing residing on a secure server
Every binary download to a desktop means you have to test/configure your 
download for every desktop configuration permutation on the planet
I think I would rather target FireFox,Netscape and IE browser clients
(vs getting emails from someone who cant run the binary because they ran out 
of diskspace)
~Just my 2 cents~

Bon Chance/Viel Gluck,
Martin-
