Replicated Architectures for Shared Window Systems: A Critique
J.C. Lauwers, T.A. Joseph, K.A. Lantz, and A.L. Romanow
Nov 5, 1999
- What are the implications in a shared windows environment for broadcasting operations such as resize and move?
- Is strict WYSIWIS really good?
- This approach requires a single floor holder as a synchronizer (ordering all events)
- Full replicated architecture will not be always desired. There are also issues about security and copyright. Additionally, differences in hardware configurations will be difficult to overcome.
