Client/Server Display Drivers

In an earlier post I made mention of a client/server display architecture based on various remoting protocols, such as .Net Remoting and Java RMI. I ran across wiser: WidgetServer today and immediately thought of my post.

wiser basically allows someone to run an application with a thin Swing client. What this means is that a wiser thin application is deployed to a client, which is basically a shell that connects to a server process that handles all the business logic and gui construction commands. So you have a dumb (aka thin) client that connects to a server in order to obtain all the run-time information defining the application.

Sounds juicy, yum!
