Dear friends,
I have developed a Java Desktop Application which is having the Swing based GUI Pages as (Frontend) and MYSQL Database as (Backend). My Application retriews the Data from Database and display on the Screen, I can also Update,Delete,Modify all the SQL Operation through Screen.

I have Installed this Application on One machine which act as a Server and Given the shortcut of .EXE file to Different User within an Intranet to access the Application.

But I just want to know the Architecture Of My Application Can I called it "Client Server based Application"or What I can Called its Architecture.

I don't think it is client server architecture. It is more Two-Tier Architecture. One is User Interface (Swing based GUI ) and another is Database. Read about Client Server Architecture

Yes, that's a client/server architecture, and probably one of the oldest forms of such an architecture, predating the web by a long time. It's also a two-tier architecture.
I agree. Here's the link:
