Describe the difference between Web and Window applications…..

Web Application: In software engineering, a Web application or webapp is an application that is accessed via Web browser over a network such as the Internet or an intranet. It is also a computer software application that is coded in a browser-supported language (such as HTML, ASP, PHP, Perl, Python etc.) and reliant on a common web browser to render the application executable.

These are used for server controls, HTML controls, user controls, or custom controls that is created especially for the Web forms. Web applications are displayed in a browser only. These are instantiated on the server; it sent to the browser and destroys immediately. These can run in any machine if that machine supports browser.

Web applications are popular due to the ubiquity of a client, sometimes called a thin client. The ability to update and maintain Web applications without distributing and installing software on potentially thousands of client computers is a key reason for their popularity. Common Web applications include Webmail, online retail sales, online auctions, wikis, discussion boards, Weblogs, MMORPGs and many other functions.

Windows Application: A program that is written to run under Microsoft’s Windows operating system. Such applications typically run under all 32-bit versions of Windows, but earlier applications might also run under the 16-bit versions (Windows 3.x) as well.

Windows applications can run on the same machine as they are displayed only on that machine. It displays their own windows and has more control over how those windows are going to display. These are instantiated and it exists for as long as needed and is destroyed.
