Smart Client Architecture and Design Guide Released

MSDN has just released a new architecture and design guide for Smart Clients which provides information on several topics for those creating smart client applications. Issues addressed include data handling, connection state management, security, and threading.

The definition of "smart client" is dependent on requirements and implementation details but all share the following characteristics:
  • Make use of local resources
  • Make use of network resources
  • Support occasionally connected users
  • Provide intelligent installation and update
  • Provide client device flexibility

To understand more on Smart Clients this article by David Hill would be helpful.
