This paper presents a case study in the use of reliable multicasting in Web-based multi-party applications. To carry out this study, we have designed and implemented WEBCLASS, a multicast browser tool written in Java. In WEBCLASS, all the actions of a “master” Web browser are mimicked on a set of client browsers. Monitoring of the master browser is performed by a set of threads, which use a reliable multicast protocol to disseminate state information and Web resources to programs that control the client browsers. The architecture and operation of the main components of WEBCLASS are described, and experimental results of a performance study are presented
