Multi-User

"chat" or game programs.

Scenario in existing systems

Specially-constructed client-to-client program supporting back-and-forth communications.

Scenario in NetAlive

NetAlive can be used for these applications. One uses an Intertask with multiple GUIs that relay data between themselves.

The Intertask should contain tasks addressed to two computers. Each address can be either no address (an alias for the computer that started the application), a static address or a dynamic address. NetAlive will load and start the application on the two computers, activating each task on one or the other computer. The NetAlive system moves data between computers automatically and as needed.

The figure below is an Intertask for a chat application. The tasks are addressed to run on hosts COLOR and MONO.

Applications using existing systems
