Any client-server application consists of two components to test. The application resides on the server machine while the application (installable file) will be on every client machine. A service is an abstraction of any computer resource and the server addresses a number of services or one service globally.
PRONIX offers desktop and client servers to help the enterprises manage the in-house processes effectively. The X Window System is one example of client-server architecture. Other examples include Email, Network Printing, WWW, FileZilla Server application and any other online services.
The primary goal of the client-server system is to provide the availability of any service on a large basis and to global users. A client cannot share any of its resources while requesting any service from the server. Therefore, clients initiate communication sessions with servers through requests over a channel.
The client and server describe the features of cooperating programs in an application. They exchange messages in a request-response format. The client sends a request and the servers respond to it. For this, both the client and server should have a common language. To formalize the data, the server implements APIs (Application Program Interface)
A desktop server is a tool installed over the local computer which acts as the server. It allows the user to install various numbers of applications and access them locally. Developers build applications in local servers and deploy them to global servers and allow them to be accessed by other users.
It is a practice to develop error-free applications and testing them before making them available. Examples of Desktop servers are Xampp, Apache Tomcat, etc., we can consider the example of the WordPress tool to understand this Desktop server.
XAMPP is a desktop server that we use to install WordPress. WordPress is a blogging platform to build websites. It has many features. When we install XAMPP in our local system, then only it allows WordPress to run in the system.
