Holy crap.

Is he saying he wants some kind of remote desktop functionality through a web browser?

I read that paragraph five times, and that's the best guess I can come up with.

Why's he asking you?

Do you mean what are his intentions or why is he asking me and not someone else? If the latter, then the answer is that it came as feedback via my website. I seem to attract questions like this from our Indian friends.

Yeah, the latter. I didn't notice that you have instructory articles on your site which sort of explaines it. At least it's not as random as I first thought.

Maybe _what_ is he asking needs answering first.

He is probably looking for advice on how to write a DB app with an oracle backend and web front, with administration functionality through telnet/SSH and commandline tools.
