A web application is a database application which is accessed using a nomal browser (eg Internet Explorer or Firefox). We use a 2- or 3- tier architecture:
This illustrates the 3-tier architecture. The client tier is normally remote from the application server, probably accessed over the internet
Benefits of Web Applications
- Multi-tier architecture give more control. Keep the data secure in the server room
- Easy deployment - thin client on user tier
- Flexible implementation
- Can be developed rapidly
