I'm trying to have my Arduino board communicate over WiFi. I assume this is best done through an Ethernet shield. (Creating a kind of server with Arduino, I guess) However, I want the Arduino to send commands to a Windows app. This app will execute some tasks on the computer.
What is the best way to program said app? Using C++? Or perhaps Java? The app needs to execute some console commands. (Run a for loop which iterates through some file on my hard disk) It will start this action when it receives a button press from the Web server.
Any guidance would be super! Thanks in advanced!
