About Web Applications

A Web application is a software program that you access via a Web browser. It can be the shopping cart application on Amazon, your company’s intranet where you find the date of the next company picnic, a powerful accounting program, a Web search engine, or even the signup form to receive a newsletter from some corporate Web site.

Most Web applications have no client-side code. All the important code and data reside on the server. Your computer could explode suddenly, and none of your work would be lost. Web applications also have the benefit of being accessible to users wherever they are, allowing the user to, among other things, collaborate with co-workers on the other side of the ocean, or place an order with a company and not care where it’s located.
