Application / Client

What is an application or client?

An application or client is a software program. In the context of a database, the client is what sends data to a database, and/or gets data from it. An example of an application is a phone app – a piece of software that runs on the phones of users, and may re quest and send data to and from a database as the user takes different actions in the app.
