The Architecture of ABACUS vi ABACUS vi requires only a browser and Java Virtual Machine to be installed on a workstation. All ABACUS vi programs automatically present themselves on any platform with the appropriately customised user interface. This means that ABACUS vi looks like a Windows application in Windows and like a Mac application on a Mac. Even when ABACUS programs are used over the Internet they operate as they would on the company network or on a local workstation. The application logic is executed completely on the server. Only the content of the user interface is transferred to the ­ ­com­puter. Free choice of server operating system The ABACUS user can freely choose the server operating system. Presently all ­ current Windows versions, Mac OS X and Linux are available.
