Thanks for replying....

Currently, I have a program written in Java which visualizes a file which has 3-D points using Visualization Tool Kit (VTK) package. Once the image is rendered, you can move it around and set different textures, colors and things like that.

Now, I would like to make it collaborative so that multiple clients can log in and see the same image and movements of the image if one of the client is moving it around.

So my initial idea was that maybe the Server could remotely call the methods in client side which implement the movement of the image. In this case, RMI/CORBA seems like a good choice. Or, simply, I could use sockets to broadcast MouseEvent to other clients and let them handle the movement of the image.

I just wanted to know how the "industry" implements this type of application. Once again, Thank you very much. I'll be looking forward to your reply.
