I am a Delphi Developer using SQL Server mostly as backend database.

I am forced to stay in the Delphi world since my job is to maintain and evolve a legacy application. I say "I am forced" since I don't believe delphi has a future.

I started learning asp.net for a future project i need to lead.

i am currently reading HTML5 books to have anothe perspective.

comment Do Java applets have any place on the web today?
I share my experience with biometric signature. The supplier of devices provides (in 2014) a java applet (to use the signature in a custom webapp). it works perfectly, probably a HTML5 replacement can be written but for now it is an acceptable solution even if on the client it is necessary to manualy allow the applet. Clearly applets are old-ish/obsolete, but not totally useless yet.

Thanks for the answer, could you be more specific about "ASP.net MVC is a real nice framework but the problem is when it come to client side work, the framework will start to become problematic." ?

comment MVC to create desktop and mobile webapps?
By further researching I realized that ASP.NET MVC with 2 views per form (one for mobile phone, one for tablet AND pc) seems a convenient way to go.

@DFord thank you. But going this way how can i use asp.net in the backend? only for loading data that the front end requests? in ASP.NET MVC the html is served by the server.

comment MVC to create desktop and mobile webapps?
I am not sure since i am researching, but if i am not going to use .net i could try some js MVC framework and write a HMTL5/css/js app. In that case MVC too. To my understanding MVC helps to avoid to keep 2 techstacks to develop the same app for 2 devices. What sounds strange to me is that MVC is always praised for "separation of concerns" and "ease of testing" and not for "multidevice developemeent" so I want to be sure it is for this too and that i didn't do a wrong assumption.
