Subject: client server application
> Hi all, i've sent a similar email earlier last week, i
> got some good feedback, however, i would like to get
> more feedback before i start designing my application.
> First of all, the application can be written in any of
> the following programming languages: C/C++ using ODBC,
> JAVA using JDBC, or Perl using DBI/DBD. I can't use
> Java servlets. I would prefer either java or perl.
> Anyways, i need to write a socket that would act as a
> middle man in a three tier client/server setup. The
> socket would accept data from a client, process it,
> and then send it to the database server to be stored.
> The server would then send some info back to the
> client via the socket. Both the client and server are
> running on unix, the server has the JDBC and DBI/DBD
> modules installed for the mysql database.
