Chapter 24. MOVING WORKGROUP APPLICATION... > UNDERSTANDING CLIENT/SERVER

UNDERSTANDING CLIENT/SERVER

Because of the confusion over what client/server is and its importance in the marketplace, a definition of client/server needs to be provided. You also need to understand what Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) is and why Access is a good selection as a front end for client/server applications. Last—and most important—you need to be aware of the factors for client/server migration.

Explaining the Term Client/Server

Everyone's talking about client/server, and although more people understand it and know how to implement a client/server solution, some people falsely believe that merely having data on the server and the application on the desktop means they're running a client/server application. In fact, many people confuse their file-server applications for client/server.
