Developing a Management System and Interface for Instant Application Window Sharing
The sharing of application windows among multiple PCs is needed to support collaborative works. It enables users to manipulate windows from different PCs when using their own PCs. However, creating native applications with a sharing function is time consuming. We therefore developed an application window sharing system using web technology. Moreover, we developed a dongle interface for an application sharing system. This enables users to start the sharing of application windows smoothly. We tested and evaluated the practically of our system. The time required to start the application window sharing was shown to be less than 2,000 ms. The present paper describes how the system can be used for practical applications.
