The Distributed Graphics Laboratory consists of the DGL server and the DGL client. The server is the heart of the system. Sessions are stored and maintanied by the server application. Users need the client application in order to log into sessions. Both, server and client are written completely in Java. Java Version 1.1.x or higher is required in order to guarantee a flawless functioning of the software.
Following files are needed:
|gipp.jar||contains all the needed Java class files|
|server.config||used to configure the server|
|client.config||used to configure the client|
|access||contains user/password pairs and access rights|
The file gipp.jar contains all the necessary class files for the client and the server. It is important that the environment variable CLASSPATH points to that file.
|Unix csh:||setenv CLASSPATH $CLASSPATH:$HOME/gipp.jar|
|Windows:|| set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;C:
