Hi Alan,

Unless you have a very pressing need to create a fat GUI client that you
can install per machine I'd encourage you to better focus on a Web
interface for your application. There are several frameworks you can use.
This would allow you to offer a friendly interface which you can run on one
or more servers to which all users would connect simply using a browser.

Best regards,
