 What's the correct spelling? "frontend", "front-end" or "front end"?
Both sorta work, but I think the really correct spelling is the latter. --Maru 14:07, 9 August 2005 (UTC)
The correct spelling is "front end". "frontend" is used in software programming. "front end" or "back end" is used often in two tier architecture to separate data collection and data processing. In three tier architecture, front end is client tier, back end is business logic and data tier. --Zhangj10 09:23, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
"Front-end". It helps disambiguate between, for example, a "front-end system" and a "front end-system". The article should be updated to include hyphenation. PersonalisedBiro (talk) 14:00, 11 March 2014 (UTC)


I think a schema would be very useful to understand quickly at the first sight what the terms mean. So if anyone can make a graphic file in a SVG format, qu'il le fasse. 16@r 17:34, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

What about supermarkets?[edit]

I was shopping and I saw signs at a supermarket about them "switching to a new front-end register (or was it cashier?) system", which was the reason they gave for asking customers to be patient. What's a "front-end system" for supermarkets? (talk) 05:54, 19 April 2009 (UTC) (note: I'm in the USA)
