Google Apps and Microsoft products are also web applications, and most web applications allow for simultaneous access to them.
How it works
The web browser includes a web server required to manage messages from the users, while an application server is applicable for tasks’ completion. On the other hand, a database stores information. Examples of Application servers are ASP, PHP, JSP, ASP.NET, and ColdFusion.
In the simplest form, it involves a user sending a request using the internet either through a web server or application. The server transmits to the right source. In the case of tasks, a web application performs them and sends results to the server to transmit to the user.
The advantages of web applications are numerous, and they include:
