Faculties and centres
We can distinguish between two types of applications: those that are launched from the operating system, eventually using a virtual machine, and those that are executed embedded in internet browser and are normally fed from a remote server. The first is called "Desktop environment applications".
Due to the fact that it is executed by the operating system and normally have all the resources with user permissions of the computer, these have peculiarities and capacities different from the internet applications.
This subject learns to develop applications of this type so that they are suitable for future maintenance.
