EAServer execution engine

The EAServer runtime engine provides a scalable and platform-independent environment for the execution of component based applications. EAServer is scalable because it is multithreaded and multiprocessor safe.

The EAServer execution environment is the same across all platforms, with the exception of ActiveX component support. ActiveX requires platform support and is currently available only on Windows.

The EAServer runtime engine provides the following services:

In addition to these built-in services, you can install service components that run in the background and provide customized services to clients or other components. See Chapter 33, “Creating Service Components,” in the EAServer Programmer’s Guide.
