Abstract
(EN)
A method and system for use in running a display-based computer application, the computer application comprising a plurality of application segments, where computing is distributed between a server and a client computer. The method comprises the steps of providing a generic client engine (20) to the client computer, the client engine comprising an application manager (24), one or more display managers (22), and one or more load managers (26), providing a collection of individual application subset definition files (18), each relating to one of said application segments, wherein, on receipt of successive application subset definition files from the server, the client recursively transforms to provide the respective application segments. The invention has broad utility in a wide variety of display-based computer applications, particularly in wireless applications.

L'invention concerne un procédé et un système utilisés pour exécuter une application informatique basée sur un affichage, ladite application comprenant une pluralité de segments d'application dans lequel un calcul étant réparti entre un serveur et un ordinateur client. Le procédé consiste: à fournir un moteur générique (20) de client à l'ordinateur client, ledit moteur comprenant un gestionnaire d'application (24), un ou plusieurs gestionnaire(s) d'affichage (22) et un ou plusieurs gestionnaire(s) de charge (26); et à fournir une collection de fichiers de définition (18) de sous-ensemble d'application individuelle, chaque fichier concernant un segment d'application. A la réception des fichiers de définition de sous-ensemble d'application successifs provenant du serveur, le client transforme lesdits fichiers de manière récursive afin de fournir les segments d'application respectifs. L'invention est utilisée dans une grande variété d'applications informatiques basées sur un affichage, en particulier, des applications sans fil.
