I have to create a web application that should be able to access and process local files on the client side (a department). As this will have to be integrated with a legacy architecture, we have this:
- Files are distributed from a central repository to its destinations, basicly, to an IP. Nowadays, files are distributed to shared folders on every department.
- There must be a web application who can access those files and process them. It must be web as one of the objectives of the project is to replace the old Visual Basic desktop client, buggy and hard to distribute.
Besides, it shouldn't use propietary technology (as far as possible) or I would find lot of resistence to do the change.
Someone decided here to use an applet (a signed one) to get access to the files and process them, but i'm not sure this is the best way.
P.S.: I've been consulting stackoverflow and found this:
As this is my first question, I wasn't sure if I should add my question to it or open a new one. My question is mainly the same but I added some requirements to it (no desktop client) which maybe could give you more hints of what I need.
P.S. 2: Architecture (not the legacy part) is still under study. Any idea would be appreciated :)
"Someone decided here to use an applet (a signed one) to get access to the files and process them, but i'm not sure this is the best way, as it has been deprecated." Neither applets nor code signing is 'deprecated'.
