Intergalactic Client/Server

Problems with "traditional" C/S
  • "tight coupling" -> rigidity, not adaptive
  • hard to "industrialize" key client features
    ex: adding an inference engine
  • hard to integrate legacy systems
  • hard to add middleware functions: shared logic, security, transaction services
  • application logic either lives on client or server
