Overview: Programming client/server applications differs from traditional programming since the programs are distributed. Understanding the client/server model enables a clear and concise program design that can be easily read and maintained. There are two categories of client/server flow control: linear and non-linear. If the client is linear then it is similar to a traditional application. It will wait on a resource, such as retrieving data from a file, or reading a socket on a server. The non-linear server contains a multiple branch that provides services to multiple clients.
