A web application is any application that uses a web browser as a client. The application can be as simple as a message board or a guest sign-in book on a website, or as complex as a full database system used to run a large company.
What is a Client?
The ‘client’ is used in client-server environment to refer to the program the person uses to run the application. A client-server environment is one in which multiple computers share information such as entering information into a database. The ‘client’ is the application used to enter the information, and the ‘server’ is the application used to store the information.
