Hi all,

Well this is the pathetic question I have ever asked, but there is no other go for me since I really don�t know how to teach flying to a blind man. Hope the answer to this question may help me.

Can anyone please let me know the exact difference between �web application�, �client server application�, �web enabled application� and �web portal�?

BTW the blind man is the oldest man in my project.

Cheers.

A client-server application could perform some processing on the client. For example, an applet that communicates with a server can be a client-server app. A web based client-server app is also known as a thin client.

A web portal is a web site that offers many services (e-mail, search engine, news, ...)

As far as I know a web application and a web enabled application refer to the same thing. (thin client app)
