The developer's software and the Xputer hardware are both located at the Xputer Laboratory at Kaiserslautern University which are in a permanent improvement process. The access for users is provided with the World Wide Web (WWW).
In order to allow an organization of the users, they must make a registration. The registration and the whole access to the local services and hardware is provided by the front-end of the XMDS.
Image 1 gives an overview of the XMDS. The user interface (XMDS Client) is programmed in Java and runs on a Java-capable Web browser (Netscape Navigator, Microsoft IE,...). The XMDS Server containing the user database runs on a PC with Windows NT and is also programmed in Java. Further design software is programmed in C and executes on a UNIX Host. The UNIX Host controls the Xputer Prototype MoM-PDA, which is integrated in the Xputer Host.
