This paper presents the design and implementation of a platform independent Client/Server Brokerage Application based on WWW Technology. This work has been done in the context of the MULTIMEDIATOR Project (ACTS 096).

This document is structured in three parts. The first one gives an overview of the MULTIMEDIATOR system, the second one explains the implementation of a Client/Server Model for a specific access method (forms access) in MULTIMEDIATOR, and the third one explains how the MULTIMEDIATOR system implements some brokerage features.

A key innovation in the forms access mechanism of the MULTIMEDIATOR system is the reuse of existing Internet technology and software for developing a Client/Server Distributed Application following the DOAM (Distributed Office Applications Model, ISO/IEC 10031) Model.
