Evaluating Distributed Graphical User Interface Communication

By Thomas Tilley and Simon Pollitt

Abstract

Two main options exist to implement an Internet front-end for an application with a graphical user interface (GUI). The first is to "hard-code" a remote interface specifically for the application and distribute it to client computers. The problem with this approach is the inflexibility of the resulting interface. An alternative approach that minimises the need for client re-distribution is to provide a GUI framework from which an application's interface can be built dynamically. This paper presents experimental results arising from a project to implement a distributed platform-independent GUI framework.
