Network Architecture

Transactions and Sessions
  • Dragan Nikolik


The client/server is a networking model and a relationship concept established between two processes or systems running these processes. A client process once initiated by the client system makes a request for a service to be provided by another system, so-called server process. Usually, the server may respond once, presumably providing the results of performing the service or by launching subsequently an “agent” task, which in turn can perform specific actions in order to complete the client’s request.
