I assume you mean the Server is broadcasting HTML or java-applets to
the Network-nodes or Thin Clients?
It works, but it is slower than a Client Server technology (still).
There are 2 variants:
- Only view
- View and Control setpoints
As in 1998-2001 all the control companies thought this was the future,
in practice, they they did not sell it that much.
It only is a good solution to broadcast analysis data to production
management (such as production-graphs, stops per shift graphs, etc.)
Give me an I/O-count and an idea of your application and I will send
you my independant advise of a solution, that I would choose.
