SAS/AF does not require SAS to run on a desktop. It does require at

is displayed on a client.

Yes, SAS supports thin and thick clients.
For thin clients, there are several choices as well as hybrids:
- SAS Integration Technologies with enabling technologies such as
ASP.NET, RoR, Silverlight, etc.
- SAS/IntrNet with the same enabling technologies
For thick clients:
- SAS/AF (I highly advise against it since it requires SAS to run on a
- .NET, J2EE, etc. using the SAS OleDb driver for reading SAS datasets
or with Integration Technologies for submitting SAS code.
If you want web stuff, read Don Henderson's book on SAS/IntrNet and the
I regularly build applications that do not rely on SAS on the desktop.
You can build apps for the web, mobile, Windows, hybrids, web services,
etc. with the right approach.

Subject: SAS as THIN client & THICK client
i heard like some applications can be used as thin client and thick
client... like we can access the application thru internet without
installing the client software in our machine.
Is SAS supports something like this?
i really would like to know the details about this as well as working
in SAS through internet...
Thanks in advance...
