Distributed Applications in a Hypermedia Setting
This paper addresses the issues involved in embedding distributed
applications in a hypermedia web. In particular, we describe how
applications generated in the Visual Obliq programming environment were
integrated with the World Wide Web. We validate our design decisions by
addressing pragmatic issues relating to the authoring process, security,
heterogeneity, and response time, and by analyzing the activities
involved in launching and joining a distributed session.
