    Abstract

    With the increase in teleworking, as well as collaborative projects being run and maintained by individuals spread throughout the globe, there has been a greater need for shared applications using the Internet, allowing groups of people to work in a single problem space, in parallel, despite being in different locations. This paper researches the current approaches to the real-time collaborative application field reviewing the technologies involved in the development of a shared whiteboard solution. A design is given for a component-oriented architecture, where the system is then implemented, contrasting the design decisions made based on the research presented. An application is developed to show the approaches which are viable in the development of a solution and also the associated benefits and pitfalls related to the implementation. In particular, the client/server-oriented architecture is used to provide a centralised solution to a shared whiteboard. Finally the article is summed up with conclusions based on each stage of the project.
