The Web brings with it new possibilities in how we design, architect, and build applications. In this talk, I will first analyze the evolution of the Web through different generations of application architectures, looking at the pros and cons of each architecture, and in particular focusing on the key enabling technologies that are fueling the change. I will then briefly survey the application development solutions offered by Sun, Microsoft, and Netscape, and conclude with some viewpoints on the emerging trends on the Web.
