Re: Java Swing Vs Visual Basic Application !!
Interesting problem. The industry is solving this problem with web based
applications. The clients just need a browser. Simple deployment to say
Then architect a J2EE architecture where if you still need it, the data
access layer between your MVC based presentation layer, the Model
mediator uses HTTP and XML/Soap to access the business objects.
BTW, since you mentioned speediness as a requirement, I think you're
going to find if you prototype your architecture and metric each layer, that
you're going to have latencies in the Soap/XML layer. Verify that the
latency of the legacy data (a guess at why your using Soap) will be not
be an issue for you.
J2EE offers the middle tier between a mix of clients with the limitations
you mention and allows your project to be designed and staffed by
standards based tallent. There's many advantages to browser based
applcations with the business logic on a middle tier.

I am doing some research on developing and deploying a project (
Client/Server ) which has lot of GUI ( Graphical User Interface )
screens.It has lot of business logic also which we are planning to implement
at the server side. The client/server will be using SOAP (Simple Object
Access Protocol ) for exchanging information.
So , the question is , Should we go with Visual Basic client or Java
Swing ( J2SE 1.3 ) based Client ?? The decision should me made considering
the following criteria ...
1) Fast GUI interaction ( i.e. , the screens should be navigated
quickly and no delays in the screens while entering data )
2) The client machine are low end machines.So , the client
should use resources efficiently and should release resources from memory if
they are not used.
I will really appreciate if any body can give me pointers about
benchmarks related to VB app and Swing based apps.
Also , it will be helpful if any one would like to share there
experience related to VB or Swing based apps.
