conversion of windows app to web-enable apps

guys i know this may sound strange but a friend of mine told me that he saw a software/application that can somehow convert windows application into a web-enabled application or at least make these windows applications accessible to the internet without rewriting the whole system... is there such a thing?Smile [:)]

Maybe he was talking about Smart Client applications?  These are still windows applications, but connect to the internet via such mechanisms as web services for data exchange.

mr. tmorton i found something i dont know if youre familiar with this.. (i think you are), could you give you insights thanks:)  -  Just like a Web application, a Windows Forms application can be deployed on a Web server and executed by merely surfing to a URL.

at least make these windows applications accessible to the internet without rewriting the whole system
This description would apply to XML Web Services.

Why not go back to your friend and ask him what he or she meant? Surely that's better than asking a bunch of strangers to make a guess as to what he or she might have meant?

(By the way, Terri is a woman.)

danmbuen, I believe TMorton is a she.  If not, I will not only apologize, but will efficiently take me out of my game for the entire week.  hah.  

Smart Clients are definitely cool.  I'm all about them.  Add in some security and hash based verification, and you're in a golden state.  I suggest you read the articles and books regarding them.  That's a very lengthy discussion if we go from the beginning to a full product, and I'm sure many will stop being entertained by the discussion.  If you have specific questions, I'm sure many, including myself, will gladly answer.

My customer wants all his employees to access the secure site without knowing the user name and password, as there is a high turn over rate.

running windows apps in web apps
Hi all, just to check it out if there is a way to run a windows app when a button in a web app is clicked.? Hi, you're referring to what's known as smart clients. You can place a windows forms executable in the virtual folder of your webserver (IIS of course ), then create a hyperlink in your webform to the executable. If the enduser has the correct .NET framerwok installed he/she can execute the application on his/her pc. Another trick, one I recently used BTW, is to embed a winforms user control, build as .dll file, in a webform. An example can be found here: Hosting a Windows Contr...

Delphi 7 app to web app conversion [Edit]
My company has an old Windows engineering application that we would like to convert to a web application so that we can offer it as a software as a service. The application is written primarily in Delphi 7 with the heavy number crunching done in Fortran (I did say it was old!). We would like to reuse as much of the existing Delphi code as possible and only modify the Fortran enough so that it will run in the background on the web server. We have never developed a web application so we're looking for guidance on the best way to make this conversion. Our questions at this point: ...
