Couldnt find a suitable spot for the problem,
might be the best one though.
I have the job of designing an application that needs to be deployed worldwide, where users from all countries can contribute to a database that is held in one country.
- User needs to use his own characterset, i.e. japanese, chinese, ....
- We need the data as UTF-8 AND as bitmap to use it in print
This is the rough sketch phase and nothing's decided yet, but after giving the thing a bit of thought i came up with two possible ways, id like to discuss:
- Web Application (Struts or whatevere) and everything is browserbased
and a fat client (we could deploy that via webstart) that
interacts via SOAP or XML-RPC
Especially this Non Latin subject scares me a bit, coming from a country where simple umlauts still pose a problem to lots of applications.
Could you please contribute some experiences, that would be great.
It is sorta covered in the
