Welcome! and rules
Joel on Software
I'd like to hear your experiences. When to use them, when not. I want a richer user interface than the web, but want to avoid the headaches of deployment in a strict environment (DoD).
I'd love to use them, but all mine are idiots.
I think about this problem a lot... we chose the 'good UI but deployment nightmare' path and despite the fact we have probably 10 people (10% of staff) over & above what a browser client would require, I am afraid we had no choice to produce a competitive UI. But the deployment hassles in a multi-customer, multi-thousand trans-continential user environment are not for the faint of heart.
I've posted this a few times before on JOS, but just in case you missed it, here's a page with a working example in .NET 1.1: http://www.agilekiwi.com/rich_clients.htm
Thanks John, the only aspect of all this that makes it difficult is the requirement for the client to have the .net framework installed.
