Hi, I see the problem in updating a /Runtime version. How do you update the
script of a /Runtime version without killing the /Runtime engine and how do
you update the /Runtime engine without killing the encrypted script
contained in it? Will the client have to download a complete new EXE? Than I
have to handle the process of generating a /Runtime version for the
client... not very cost effective.

Hmm... I'm not sure if parse on opened port will solve the problem.
Accessing huge amounts of data fast needs some datastructure infrastructure
;-) to be efficient & effective. If you want to use parse, than parse would
have to support several channels: One data channel to skip along; one index
channel, which will provide optimized skip information for the data channel

Try the www.mozart-oz.org and www.openip.org the OpenAmulet documentation
contains some information about constraint programming. Hope this helps.
