Qt application with server
I developed a Qt application. Now I need a server with a remote database to implement new features. I don't want that the application is directly connected with the remote database. Indeed I think it isn't the best way. Communication will be done in RESTful.
My quetion is how to implement the server. Should I necessarily do this with Qt or can I use other languages (for exemple java with tomcat) ... What are the differences between these two ways , a question of performance?
I always developed my server side component in Qt using QTcpServer with a "custom" communication protocol.
But my applications don't need to communicate with 3rd party software.
To follow this way I started from the Fortune Example.
Honestly I don't know about performance but it works great.
Thank you for your answer !
I think I will do .... 2 server.
The first one in Qt (probably with QTcpServer -> thx for your link). My app will be always connected with it.
The second server will offer an API rest and it will use a database.
2 servers because later there will be a web application.
My app will use these two servers ...
I don't know if it's a good practice, Lack of experience ...
What do you think about it ? Thx
I have similar situation.
My App talk with the server using QTcpSocket/Server .
The same server (and same application) provide rest like service using QtWebApp for web clients.
I put both service on the same server application to share the same logic/code but you can also develop 2 independent services to optimize the load from different clients.
Hi and welcome to devnet,
You also have the cutelyst project that might be of interest.
