The Daily Reports prototype is the
starting point for a class of applications that apply rules
to complex numerical inputs.
Several variations and combinations include:
Forms that create exports to client side spreadsheets
Forms that record itemized and balanced information into databases
Forms that configure products based on list item or dollar parameters
Exports into spreadsheets might include thumbnail mortgage, car loan, or
tax forms based on price, income, and credit history information.
Exports to databases would be more comprehensive daily reports, which not only
balance the cash drawer but also itemize labor costs, items sold, and overhead
cash disbursements. A typical user community would consist of restaurant managers
in a restaurant chain. Using the "thin client", it would not be necessary to
support on-site software at potentially hundreds of restaurant locations.
Product configuration could be anything from aircraft, computers, industrial
machinery to services such as vacation plans, catering, or home remodeling.
Some Windows CE devices run variations of Internet Explorer, so some or all
of the programming functionality on the client side exports directly to Win
CE browsers. Web pages can be stored in the Win CE device, so there is no
requirement to be connected to the Internet while the web page is being used,
as long as the computed results don't need to be saved to a server.
The amortization table prototype is the
starting point for any client side facility for generating HTML content.
Normally the contents of a web page are hard coded in the text, or are
generated by server side scripts such as Active Server Pages. Dynamic
HTML is created as the user interacts with the web page.
Normally, data submitted to a web server for inclusion in a database
requires that a new page be generated, leaving a trail of out-of-date
web pages backed up in the browser history. Dynamic HTML permits
the client side script to update the existing page with new information
as it is presented from the server. This bears a greater resemblance
to more traditional mainframe and minicomputer terminal interfaces.
Database access via Dynamic HTML also requires that Java applets
communicate to the server via HTTP or FTP. The server has to host
complementary services designed to serve Dynamic HTML clients.
Wireless Mesh Networking creates a means for monitoring the physical
arrangement and correct interconnection of a complicated production facility
or server installation. Such a system simpllifies life for plant operators
