How It Works
There are 3 essencial parts of this project:
- Web Client (front-end)
- Web Server/UDP Client (back-end)
- UDP Server (back-end)
When a user perform an action in the Web Client, the Web Client send a message to Web Server; Web Server reads the message, translate and send it to UDP Server; UDP Server reads the message, perform the action and sends the message to all UDP Client (users); UDP Client reads the message, translate and send it back to Web Client; Web Client reads the message and perform the action;
