I need guidance on how to start with this small project. I need to implement a web interface that will access applications that developed in vb.net with sql back end.
What I mean is the following: I have two small applications, one is fire arms registration and the other is logistic. Both apps reside on the same sql server. I want to have a web interface that will point to each one base on the user access. that is if the user is from fire arm than fire arm registration app will launch and so on..
of course this can for a number of applications.
The general purpose of this, is to have access to these applications via the web.
what best solution to use in order to accomplish this task.
I would like to know what i need to consider first in all aspect of this task.

What do you mean 'access applications'? You want to give a WEB UI to it or launch an exe? If launch then, since it's a web interface, exe needs to be downloaded to client system and then launched. If you do a process.start on server, it will not be on client system and they will now see/know.
I did asked this too: If server, what's the use? Can you share the expected workflow from logging in to returning back something to user.
I get that one executable needs to be picked, what after that, what role does it play and how does client come to know/use it. Since it will not be downloaded and will be launched on server side, what are you trying achieve?
