Need guidelines on creating LAN enabled J2SE Application With DB
hi i have worked in VB/C# where i created LAN enabled applications like apps for record handling and MIS/ERP solution type, now i have switched to java so i want to know a few queries as:
1. Do we have to go JSP/EJB for LAN applications or i can make them in core Java too.
2.if,its possible to create application like that in core java ,what kind of classes/packages i need for them(other then java.net) and 3rd party api's for simple working?
3. how can such application be going to interact with each other or do i need threads (thread executions) to make it understand about every process going between diiferent client and one server?
4. Is it not possible to achieve such facility with DB connection call with diff server ip/port instead of making the app to listen for its server and then work ?
5.in Above,, which one will going to be smooth in between them?
i know its too much in one go but if someone can look into this topic, please answer even one question which you like.
Thanks and Regards
