Distributed applications: a journey to platform independency

With the wide explosion of the Internet, distributed applications have become a necessity. A problem with some of these applications is that they are platform dependent, they only work on one computer platform. With the use of action research and participatory design we have in this thesis shown how a platform dependent distributed application could be made platform independent when it comes to functionality. In our specific research object we succeeded in going from an ActiveX control (platform dependent) to a Java applet (platform independent). This thesis is a guideline of how one could go from a platform dependent distributed application to a platform independent alternative.
