I am hoping to get some thoughts on which may be the better approach to take on the below for an ASP.Net website/application talking to PI Web API.
Note that the application has the potential to become complex over time.
My Questions (to all experienced web developers/developers out there):
- Which do you think is a better approach to take? What are the reasons?
- Are there any potential issues that you see with taking approach 1 versus approach 2? Putting a thick client does not appeal to me architecturally, but I am after any additional insights you can provide?
All suggestions and knowledge is greatly appreciated.
