An e-Business Framework for Developing Rich and Reliable Client Applications

This paper introduces an e-Business framework for developing rich and reliable client applications. The major advantages of our framework are: (1) it improves the usability of client applications, for example, providing a rich user experience (2) it increases the scalability of a server by exchanging small messages between a the server and clients, (3) it provides reliable transactions by using message-oriented middleware, and (4) it provides disconnected operations. In this paper, we introduce our framework first, then describe in detail our implementation of the server and client based on it, and show some new e-Business examples made possible by our framework. Finally we point out some problems in constructing such a system and make a comparisons with other possible approaches.
