A toolkit for peer-to-peer distributed user interfaces: concepts, implementation, and applications

  title={A toolkit for peer-to-peer distributed user interfaces: concepts, implementation, and applications},
  author={J{\'e}r{\'e}mie Melchior and Donatien Grolaux and Jean Vanderdonckt and Peter Van Roy},
In this paper we present a software toolkit for deploying peer-to-peer distributed graphical user interfaces across four dimensions: multiple displays, multiple platforms, multiple operating systems, and multiple users, either independently or concurrently. This toolkit is based on the concept of multi-purpose proxy connected to one or many rendering engines in order to render a graphical user interface in part or whole for any user, any operating system (Linux, Mac OS X and Windows XP or… CONTINUE READING
