  1. @Aljaxus Thank you so much for your reply, i've been chewing on it for a few weeks now and it really put things into perspective for me. I've got my server up and running, I decided on WAMP because its pretty well documented and easy to set up. I've got a static public ip and its working. I loved the idea of using the web-server as a proxy server but my team opted to have the clients communicated directly to the application server. Frankly when you responded I didn't have the slightest clue what a proxy server was, or even what a web-server was. Again thank you so much I wouldn't have been able to even start this project without this post.
  2. I'm working on a project for school where we need to create a chat application for Android that communicates a website. We have never done anything that communicates over a web server and I'm having trouble understanding webserver communication. So we are creating an android application and will likely be using HttpURLConnect to send our Posts to the application server which will be written in Java using javalin( we've also never touched javalin) the application server will communicate with the database through a translation layer and then send back the requested information as a json object, the android application will interpret the json object locally to display the nessesary info. The same will be done through the web interface. Most of our communication will be updating and requesting chat logs from the database. That's sort of what I understand what's confusing me is that I was told that on-top of the application server we need a separate webserver for the web interface, and what I don't get is why do we need that and why can't the web interface simply communicate directly with the application server? Also I need to figure out how to set up an application server for testing locally. Any advice or book recommendations that cover these topics would be appreciated.
