Although I managed to pass part 1 of the SCEA certification, I still lack some experience; so for me part 2 contains another steep learning curve. Some of my questions may appear to be ignorant.
Now for my question with regards to part 2:
two types of client are required, one for employees and one for web users. The former must be twice as fast as the latter. To date, I couldn't detect any other material differences between the two.
Couldn't one just develop one type of client? Both clients would make use of https over the internet. The client for the employees would be connected via an (A)DSL line of sufficient bandwidth, so as to ensure speed. Surely this must be less expensive than the current leased line to all the employee locations...
Or isn't this done? Transmitting business data via the internet? If I can, I'd like to avoid the Schlepp of developing a (fat) Java application client.
Your thoughts would be very much appreciated.

A web client will be slower than a fat client even if you put both of them on the same, company, intranet.
