Browsers for Distributed Systems: Universal Paradigm or Siren's Song?

  • August 1998
  • By Robert C. Seacord, Scott Hissam
  • This report examines the technical issues relevant to incorporating web browsers as a component of a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) -based solution.

  • Abstract

    Web-based browsers are quickly becoming ubiquitous in the workplace. Software development managers are quick to incorporate browsers into a broad range of software development projects, often inappropriately. The purpose of this technical report is to examine the technical issues relevant to incorporating browsers as a component of a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) -based solution. Issues examined include portability, performance, functionality, severity, human factors, distribution, installation, upgrading, component-based development, runtime configuration management, and licensing.
