The Easy, Object-Oriented Way
To Build Client-Server Systems
Cliser is middleware that makes building a client-server system
as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4:
Cliser is open-source freeware designed by
Joel Adams, and implemented by
Joel Adams and Ryan VanderBijl.
Its development was supported by funding from
The Council for Internation Exchange of Scholars (CIES),
and the Calvin College
Using Cliser, specify the parameters of the system you
want to build (e.g., name of service, port number, protocol, etc.);
Cliser then generates object-oriented source code for the system
you have specified.
Add to that source code the functionality
to specify the behavior of a client at its end of an interaction,
and/or the behavior of a server at its end of an interaction.
(Cliser cannot generator code for this,
because different services require different behaviors.)
This is the only non-trivial part of using Cliser.
Compile (and if necessary link) the source
code files to create binary executables.
Deploy and run your client-server system.
