JACIE - A Language for Net-centric, Multimedia and Collaborative Applications

Phil Grant

(Swansea)

We will present details of a new scripting language, JACIE, designed to support rapid prototyping and implementation of net-centric, multimedia and collaborative applications. The support for the management of multimedia interaction and communication in collaborative applications is highlighted. JACIE facilitates such support through the concepts of channels and a collection of interaction protocols. A template-based programming style is adopted by JACIE, using a single program for both client and server, and platform-independence achieved by employing Java as the target language. Examples of applications developed in JACIE will be illustrated.
