    Most legacy client/server systems have been written with data and functionality bound in a non-ideal way resulting the user having to manipulate the input data and interpret the results, usually using 4GLs. Ideal client/server applications would contain more appropriate bindings of functionality and data into objects that can be made freely available over networks. One possible approach to these p...

  • Client/server: Why? What? How?

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):1/1 - 111 vol.1
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (728 KB)

    This paper is an introduction to the general concept of client/server computing. It starts from one major problem that system architects face today, i.e. application integration. It explains how this leads to the concepts of communication buses, middleware technologies, application interfaces, object modeling, application encapsulation, application frameworks, and finally to a global system archit...

    The computational requirements of modern information systems, coupled with the inherent limitations of the relational databases, are stimulating research into post-relational database systems. The recent advances in object databases resulting from the integration of object-oriented programming capabilities with database capabilities, seem highly promising. The Object Database Management Group (ODM... View full abstract»

  • How to control the costs of client/server developments

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):8/1 - 8/8 vol.1
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (468 KB)

    The most fundamental factor determining the development costs of client/server application systems is the size of the system in terms of the number of requirements and their technical complexity. It follows that the most basic way of controlling costs is to control the number and scope of business and technical requirements. Beyond this basic control, there any many other factors which affect the ... View full abstract»

    This paper provides an overview of the major communications issues facing organisations as they move from the host-based computing model, through to a client/server computing environment. While many organisations have already proceeded some way down the client/server development route, almost all organisations are strategically placed to implement corporate client/server systems in the forseeable ...

  • Open systems evolution

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):12/1 - 12/4 vol.1
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (252 KB)

    A brief overview is provided of open systems from the first proprietary systems to the current client/server systems. Future directions are also considered. Evolution of information systems is motivated by two factors; technology and business needs. Business needs always inspire technology development and set the main directions. On the other hand technology also impacts business needs by distingu... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (404 KB)

    The Division of Computer Science at the University of Hertfordshire, UK, has added a course on the practical uses of network technology to their degree in computer science. This was done to meet the needs of students interested in information systems rather than the more traditional computer science topics like software engineering and computer systems. The course covers the use of the Internet an... View full abstract»

  • Successful system architecture development for enterprise wide client server implementation

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):5/1 - 515 vol.1
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (760 KB)

    Many companies adopting client-server technology have failed to be successful, often failing on their second and third client-server projects rather than their first one. Such failures can be attributed to the lack of an initial systems architecture blueprint. Such a blueprint defines the systems and databases required and maps them to planned computing platforms and locations within the enterpris... View full abstract»

    To allow applications such as interactive analysis and control of data production in a distributed computing environment, the client-server model has proved to be very effective for the development of sophisticated and specialized tools for the full exploitation of modern computing resources. Actual costs and performances make the development of such tools and computing environments both feasible ... View full abstract»

  • WWW in an open Office System

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):16/1 - 16/5 vol.1
    Cited by:  Patents (3)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (320 KB)

    The centralised, integrated Office System has had fair success but it increasingly failed to satisfy evolving user expectations. The limitations of a single, proprietary system yielded to the siren of GUI workstations and the flexibility and choice offered by open systems products. In any case, the mainframe was no longer economically viable in the face of cheap, distributed computing power. Coupl... View full abstract»

  • Life-cycle models for developing current and future client/server software: procedural centric vs. data centric (object-oriented) approach

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):15/1 - 15/7 vol.1
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (332 KB)

    Two main types of software development life-cycle used to produce client-server software are compared: procedural centric vs. data centric (object-oriented). The criteria for the comparison are two of the key requirements for software maintenance of the life-cycle: good modularisation (encapsulation) and extensibility (re-configuration). Using an ineffective life-cycle can lead to poor management ... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (500 KB)

    Client-server technologies now have the price/performance capabilities to offer the only credible way of reconciling the ubiquitous desktop PC with centralised enterprise systems. They function by separating the computing processes and thereby enabling the end-user to improve customer service by optimal use of enterprise resources. This same fragmentation is breaking down established supply chains... View full abstract»

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (932 KB)

    The client-server programming model has traditionally supported numerous data applications which can tolerate delay and jitter bounds. The quality of service (QoS) concept is mandatory for multimedia associations since it expresses the application requirements towards the communication subsystem. The application developer should be provided with a mechanism to select and control those QoS paramete... View full abstract»
