Hi Martynas,

I'm afraid I don't fully understand yet.

”server side": does it mean
internal things that are not visible from the outside,
or (an) external interfaces() offered by a server?

But those goals are somehow related right?
Not having to write much code to interact with any server X,
seems close to having every client interact with every sever.

In what sense are RDBMS Web architecture components?
It what sense are they obsolete?

So if I understand this right, it is about server-side components
that have similar observable behavior on the other side of the HTTP connection,
but different inner workings?

But why does this need standardization then?
Who needs to talk to the inner system of the server?

Best,

Ruben
