comment A simple definition of client-server
@Caleb - How does your definition exclude something like a method call? Not trying to be difficult but one of my goals is to extol the virtues of a client-server architecture in comparison to frameworks that try to make everything look like a method call. Also, I'm looking for help in both phrasing the definition and in better understanding the concept. Even though I've been programming for years, this question and answer on state was still useful to me.

@Caleb - apologies for the miscommunication. I do want a simple definition but you can assume that the audience is comprised of competent developers.

comment A simple definition of client-server
@Caleb I like the notion of symmetry. There is at least one problem with the definition though - it assumes that the participants must be running on distinct computers when in fact they could be running on the same thread in the same process.

@GordonM - No (check my stackoverflow profile for evidence). I am writing a paper but I am not a student.

@JoshRagem - Thanks for the comment but I'm not really looking for an analogy, just a definition that's concise, precise, and accessible to an average developer.
