See if anyone can help me. I need to design a web application upload to
a server that works with a database hosted on the PC user logged. This
means that when a user logs on, the application configures the
connection to a database hosted on your PC. Is it possible to RoR? Is it
possible with Java,. Net, php ...?
This has nothing to do with the platform you use.
What on earth has Java/.NET/PHP to do with connecting a web app with a
database on the client machine?
Have you ever thought about firewalls?, NAT? Port Forwarding?
Saying this is possible for all those platforms smells like trolling.
I don't think he did say it was possible, he asked if it was.
Ohh you're right. I think I read it in a rush and I rushed myself to reply.
I'm sorry David, nevermind my words.
On the other hand, depending on what you need to do, HTML5's local
storage might be a good option.
