Web Clients

The Web client provides a useful user interface for accessing the OME server which does not require a special program on the client machine. Since it is implemented via the normal Web protocols, any standard Web browser can be used on any machine and operating system.

The only part of the OME server Web interface which might cause a problem is with the image viewer, which is implemented in SVG. SVG is a W3C standard and support for it should increase over time. Until then, if your Web browser does not support SVG directly, Adobe publishes an SVG plug-in for most standard browsers on the most common operating systems.

Since the Web interface runs via a standard browser, no installation is required on the client side, except for the possible SVG plug-in described above. However, the OME server Web interface relies on a set of Perl classes which reside on the data server; during the data server installation phase, you will need to ensure that the Web interface's server classes are installed in Apache. (This can be handled automatically by the installer; just say "yes" to the appropriate prompts.)
