I'm evaluating a project where we will have to implmenent a server application that allows client applications (not a browser) to transmit data to an database and download digital audio files.
Clients will be a custom application not a web browser.
We will have about 11 Downloads/minute with about 40MB per download.
I have written client-sever database applications, but without server side processing.
I'm experienced with C# and C++, so it would ne nice if I could realize the project without learning JAVA.
What are the topics I should look at?
