In my company we work on a software that produce reports in html format. My bosses love the fact that static html pages can be moved across computer simply by moving/copying a folder and no web server is involved, so the customer only need a browser.
The problem is that they asking me to implement a lot of feature which is very hard to implement properly and in a clean way without an application server.
Frames cross domain problem, the impossibility to work with GET and POST data, no URLs routing...is very hard to work with this limitations.
Anyone had similiar experience and wants to share their tricks/suggestion ?
Do I need to tell my boss 'there is no future without a web server'?
