SOClass™ Ultra Light Architecture (ULA™) targets primarily emerging portable Internet client appliances such as Personal Digital Assistant and cell phones. However, its flexible design also allows for classical light Web clients such as HTML browsers.
Although the underlying ULA Java technology is “Servlets”, the technological integration of the SOClass platform hides its complexity. In order to develop ULA e-documents, the standard SOClass precepts and rules are to be applied: learn once, develop anywhere!
The ULA servers cooperate with SOClass servers in order to serve the Internet appliance clients, which consequently benefit from the same wealth of functionality as the standard SOClass client applications do. Of course, ULA users of e-documents may wish to use simplified document designs depending on User Interface (UI) restrictions of devices currently available (small size screens, limited data capture capacity, etc.)
