Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"Network-centric computing, fueled by the Java programming language and other new and emerging Internet technologies, has the potential to revolutionize the traditional uses of computing technology. A thin-client programming model enables application development in this environment. The key aspect of this model is that the client downloads application front ends from the network, that the client relies on services obtained from the network, and that services are bound as late as possible. This results in better software manageability, client platform independence, and a reduction in administrative costs. Presented is a thin-client application development based upon this thin-client programming model. The framework consists of a number of interrelated components and common system services from the client end to a spectrum of servers. It has been implemented using JavaBeans and the Java Development Kit."
