Challenges in modern Distributed Interactive Application design (Technical Report)
Marshall, D. and Delaney, D. and McLoone, S. and Ward, T. (2004) Challenges in modern Distributed Interactive Application design (Technical Report). NUI Maynooth.
This technical report gives an introduction to Distributed Interactive Applications (DIA), including a brief background with some examples. An outline of the three classes of challenges that drive the design of DIA architectures - the users, the physical restrictions, and the required capabilities - is given. The manner in which the designer addresses these challenges, namely dynamic extensibility, scalability, interactibility and interoperability, is explored in detail in terms of the software and network architectures.
