dude - everyone has their own bent on what's 'easier' - that depends on their experience etc - so you're always going to get

I think you need to 'doodle' on paper and write the functions you need - eg
upload a file (code) to the server
run a CLI interface to the microprocessor
return the output to the client
Interface to Serial/UART layer
Web to serial/UART bridge
run code file
.. and then see if your php knowledge for example can implement the functions you need - simulate, mock up etc to start with
Quote:Of course I can just try some things
I think you HAVE to try some things - there may not be one way of doing it - I would have thought, that it could be done with almost any 'web kit' .. you mention AJAX for example, that may steer you down a track - eg ASP.NET - ultimately, you need to experiment a bit with what you know already - php, and see if you can build up the functionality you need - you can surely include this process as part of your thesis "I started with x but ended up using y becuase of ....." its like testing a hypothesis isnt it ?
