Muller, M.J. ; Bell Commun. Res., Piscataway, NJ, USA

The author describes an architecture and a protocol to solve a number of problems that may arise in a distributed computing setting, including incompatible hardware and software environments, incompatible user interfaces, and customization requirements. The focus is on providing an enabling environment for flexible user interface specification that can provide both common functionality and, if needed, local customization. The overall architecture of the solution is described, and examples of the protocol for specifying user interface functionality are presented
