Client-Server Applications

Client-Server applications and n-tier architecture have always played a key role in operation of businesses. Ability to input, process, store, and access data from anytime, anywhere and any device is powering eBusinesses of today. Stubbornsoft specializes in development of high-end client-server applications and robust enterprise applications with user-friendly interfaces. Depending on your business requirements, our consultants and developers can also help in developing web-enabled applications and systems.

Your employees, customers, and suppliers need data access that is secure, fast and reliable. As a business, you need secure systems that are robust, easy to maintain, and scalable. We keep all of this in consideration when building and upgrading your corporate systems and applications.

Client Server Computing:

Three characteristics set client-server computing apart from the rest of the IT world:

1. Division of labor
Client-server systems divide up the work of computing among many separate machines.

2. Network infrastructure
Given this division of labor, client-server systems rely on networks to weld together disparate computers into a cohesive whole.

3. Emphasis on the user
It provides users with greater latitude in choosing software presentation, and software designers with greater latitude in creating programs that are pretty, readily customized, and modern

Using structured methodologies and proven IT processes helps to reduce complexity, risks and costs associated with client-server development.

Stubbornsoft has expertise in a wide variety of the latest programming language tools and platforms for client-server application. In a nutshell our strong technical team can help ensure that the client-server products and services we provide meet your expectations. 

Client-server computing has arisen because of a change in business needs. Businesses today need integrated, flexible, responsive and comprehensive applications to support the complete range of business processes.   Typical shortcomings of existing systems include:

  • applications were developed to model vertical applications
  • applications were built in isolation
  • applications were implemented as monolithic systems
  • applications were complex
  • the supporting technology was based on a centralized control mode
  • the technology used was not internet centric or compatible

Distributed Applications
There is no doubt that there is great demand for large-scale distributed applications. Indeed, tremendously expensive special-purpose distributed systems have been deployed and today are used extensively in the banking, airline, and telecommunication industries. The major barrier to supporting these, and even richer, applications on the Internet is the difficulty of designing, building, testing, and maintaining distributed applications using the tools that comprise the state-of-the-art today.

Our proposal is to develop tools that will enable developers to realize scalable distributed applications on the Internet. The life cycle of a distributed application can typically be viewed as having four stages:

1. Design stage
2. Implementation and testing stage
3. Deployment and utilization stage
4. Maintenance and evolution stage

Stubbornsoft develops diffrent tools to assist you with each of these four stages as:

1. Stubbornsoft approach to helping developers design applications is to provide a set of general-purpose building blocks from which more complex systems can be composed.

2. To facilitate implementation, we plan to develop a methodology for whole-system simulation using true client behavior in highly realistic network conditions.

3. Deploying network applications today is a painfully manual process and prone to error. To reduce this hurdle, we propose to create a shared infrastructure that software developers will employ during the deployment and the maintenance and evolution stages.

4. Finally, we plan to develop a set of tools for monitoring distributed applications that will improve their long-term reliability by reporting on their behavior (and failures).

Most companies have not taken full advantage of multi-tiered (n-Tier) architectures. The guiding principles of distributed multi-tiered architectures like J2EE and .net / Windows DNA are Web computing; faster time to market; true interoperability; Scalability, reduced complexity; language, tool, and hardware independence; and lower cost of ownership.

For the distributed applications development, Stubbornsoft employs component technologies like COM, DCOM, Enterprise Java Beans, RMI and CORBA and UML, Design patterns for software Design.

The .NET Framework provides access to technologies that enable developers to build distributed applications. We use .NET to take full advantage.
