A web application is a database disc.
A web service is a online service, as in Verizon online service,
Or a web site service that you went to own or rent.
server-based application (as above) which may be accessed over the web via HTTP, but is
meant primarily for interaction with other programs. Thus, it will have a clearly-defined API
which consists of providing responses to HTTP GET and POST requests made by a remote application.
Now, this doesn't mean you can't access a web service from your browser, but it means that the
application won't necessarily have a GUI user interface. You will most likely, for example,
receive all results of GET and POST requests as strings of XML, which requires a client-side parser.
So, think of web applications as completed user interfaces, while web services are more intended to
be application components or "libraries" which can be used by other applications. Essentially,
web services are to distributed applications what DLLs or class libraries are to most traditional
Also, this means that a web service has to have a more organized design that most web applications,
because there won't necessarily be a human at the other end who can figure out through trial and
error what the app does. This is why the whole concept of "web services" has brought a whole new
set of acronyms such as SOAP, UDDI, etc...
An online application is a web-based application which uses a web browser as a client. A web application is software that runs in a web browser and is created in a browser-supported programming language.
A website is like a foundation and can host several web applications. A web application serves a specific function such a shopping cart or a blogging application. So a website can have a message board, a blog, a photo gallery and many other types of web applications under its cloud.
WEB APPLICATION: An application that is delivered using internet technology and meets one or more of the following conditions: Utilizes a database (such as Oracle or SQL Server) Is developed using an application development tool (such as Oracle Internet Developer Suite or Visual Studio) Extracts data from multi-record files Requires a constantly running server process (such as Newsgroups and Chatrooms) Stores input data from data entry screens or web forms Depending on its requirements, a web application may be an Internet Application or an Intranet Application.
WEBSITE: The entire collection of web pages and other information (such as images, sound, and video files, etc.) that are made available through what appears to users as a single web server.
Website is going to a site like Google.com. The HTTP will let you through.
Web Applications are things that are programs like skype. They require you to download. But still use your internet access
Application software is computer software which is specially developed to help users for doing specific task on the computer.
Web application which helps user, to receive and submit data from or in database on the internet with the help of web browser.
Examples of application software are all computer softwares such as graphic software(Adobe Photoshop).
Basic difference is web applications runs online and requires an active internet connection.
While desktop application runs within desktop and may or may not require internet connection.
Mobile apps vs. web apps
Native mobile apps are built for a specific platform, such as iOS for the Apple iPhone or Android for a Samsung device. They are downloaded and installed via an app store and have access to system resources, such as GPS and the camera function. Mobile apps live and run on the device itself. Snapchat, Instagram, Google Maps and Facebook Messenger are some examples of popular mobile apps.
Web apps, on the other hand, are accessed via the internet browser and will adapt to whichever device you’re viewing them on. They are not native to a particular system, and don’t need to be downloaded or installed. Due to their responsive nature, they do indeed look and function a lot like mobile app.
Web application require internet acess but application software does not.
Basic difference is web applications runs online and requires an active internet connection. While desktop application runs within desktop and may or may not require internet connection.
A desktop application is installed on a single desktop computer, the data is stored locally on that computer or perhaps on a network server. Other desktop applications might be installed on a network server, they are local to that network. Web applications run via a web server, the program and data are available anywhere the Internet is available.
Web application Desktop application
All the web applications are distributed but not vice versa...
Pretty much with a web app you don't have to download, a windows application you probably have to download.
Eclipse is a IDE and platform for developing web-application but MyEclipse is a plugin support to eclipse for developing web application. vinod
A web application offers a clear and focused service. A web portal is rather a sort of "start page" that contains links to a variety of resources and services.
If the desktop application you mean would be run on a web browser - Then the answer is YES. STRUTS is an open source framework used for the development of web based java applications using other J2EE technologies like JSP, Servlets and XML.
Web applications are hosted on Web Platforms. For example: Google Chrome is a Web Platform. Google Maps is a Web Application. The browser is the platform, the interactive experience is the application.
== == The basic difference between a web server and an application server is Webserver can execute only web applications i,e servlets and JSPs and has only a single container known as Web container which is used to interpret/execute web applications Application server can execute Enterprise application, i,e (servlets, jsps, and EJBs) it is having two containers 1. Web Container(for interpreting/executing servlets and jsps) 2. EJB container(for executing EJBs). it can perform operations like load balancing , transaction demarcation etc etc
A Java applet is embedded within a web page, while a Java application will run directly on your computer.
Do you mean the difference between RAM and ROM? If that is what you meant then ROM is what is used to read discs that are put into the computer, but RAM is used to temporarily hold memory from desktop and web based applications.
