I don't want to sound negative, but GUI part is imo least important. I think that n-tier rameworks has its puprose still, as such aproach provides you with kind of plug-in mechanism - don't you like simple storage? So just use some kind of db, while your above layer still can call the same function name and does not require to change. Abstraction is usefull sometimes :-) Well, I will wait for more material from your part, but two parts I will be interested in mostly are: - FSM - workflow - what gets what state upon what conditions, where is it forwarded, what action occures, etc. - strong workload organisation ... - distribution - what model is used beneath the surface? Will it work upon IOS, will it use any kind of P2P? Any other server model? What workload is it able to handle? Will it be fast enough? Will it allow off-line functinality where it does make sense etc etc etc .. -pekr-
