I have been given a task to develop an application and I am the one rsponsible for defining its architecture and design like how it will work and so on. Basically, today we have two web applications, one developed in Epi Server and the other developed in
MVC 5. Both of these applications have a page that shows a Google map inside an iframe today. In the iframe, it calls an external service that renders the map for us. The entire application is responsive design friendly except this map page because its built
with old style html standards and so on.
Now my company has decided that instead of calling an external service, we must have in house solution. So I am given this task. The only requirement from my boss is that we must have a common backend which generates a view/partial view with a map and a
little GUI in order to input a specific address and search for it and see info on the map about it. The GUI is very simple as it just has one textbox for entering address and a serach button. The other goal is to have this follow responsive design.
The backend will generate two different views with different styling which corresponds to the application that has requested it. So lets say it will return a view called ApplicationA.cshtml if ApplicationA has requested to have a map and its GUI and so on.
This is my first ever task where I have been given the responsibility to architect/design it also. Therefore, any help or suggestion would be welcome regarding this if someone have experience of designing such applications previously. One confusion I have
though is that when ApplicationA will request this backend application and receives the partial view/view from it, then user sees the map and want to enter address. Now how will I send this address to backend application?
This might sound boring but any suggestions are welcome.
