Esri provides a variety of Web application architecture choices, including both configurable viewers as well as web APIs for developers.
Consider using Web applications if:
- Your application must be delivered accessible to users through a Web browser or a specialized user agent.
- You require broad reach and a standards-based user interface (UI) across multiple platforms.
- You require easy deployment and change management.
- You want to minimize client-side dependencies and impact, such as disk or processor usage.
