VisualAge Smalltalk Goodie: Ultra Light Client

Description

Ultra Light Client (ULC) supports the deployment of applications with very lightweight clients. It enables centralization of system maintenance and administration, decreasing the cost of desktop management.

ULC is designed to run applications on a centrally controlled application server. Only the presentation portion of an application is run on the end-userís desktop. Presentation is implemented as a universal user interface engine (UI Engine). Because no application-specific code is run on the client, there is no need for application-specific administration of the desktop machine.

Supported Platforms

Windows NT, Windows 2000, OS/2

Installation Instructions

  1. Unzip the distribution package file, "Goodie-UltraLightClient.zip" into your VisualAge Smalltalk Client root directory (for example, c:\vast600). Note that Your unzip program must honor (not flatten) the directory structure when it unzips the package.
  2. Make <vast-root>\goodies\UltraLightClient\setup (Windows or OS/2) your current directory.
  3. Run the setup script appropriate to your platform (for example, setup_w.bat for Windows) to copy files to their final location.
  4. Start your VisualAge Smalltalk development image and setup the library tools to import all required maps by swiping and executing this expression: EtTools moveAllRequiredMapsToo: true.
  5. Import the 'Goodies - Ultra Light Client' configuration map from <vast-root>\goodies\UltraLightClient\manager\ULClient.dat (Windows or OS/2).
  6. From the System Transcript, select Tools ->Load/Unload features and load ST:Server, SST. (Server Smalltalk) ST:Performance Workbench
  7. To load the ULC Smalltalk server code, load (with required maps) the 'Goodies - UltraLightClient' configuration map.
