I have some requirements in which I have to build an application which runs on client pcs and later it will be deployed for the web. First I thought, I can build a wpf application and later I will build an application with the same functionality. Then again , I will have to do the double-work for the same tasks. I was wondering if there is a way to build desktop application in mvc itself. And If I choose WPF for this application using MVVM framework, then still I will have to create the same application for the web. Tell me what should I do ?

Why desktop application? Do only web application and access it from the intranet!

I would post this idea as the solution.

Why desktop application? Do only web application and access it from the intranet!
When you are ready for show-time expose your intranet site to the wide web in 5 minutes...

thanks :)
Desktop Application is for desktop, and Web Applications is for the web. So, have two options here. You can do a Web Application with MVC or do a Silverlight application (for Web via plugin & Desktop offline).

Use WCF for your data services ;)

If I'm not mistaken you browse different sites on your desktop every day...Why not browse one more - intranet - site?
In most cases there is no reason to develop two (or more) UI solutions for the same problem...

Yes, of course. I wrote Web Application or Silverlight. Company decides about intranet or internet directly. Regards.
