hi again,

this message is a response to Christian Klippel's post about jmax
architecture :

i never said jmax was not client/server oriented BUT
it's quite different :

in jmax, the audio engine [fts] acts as a server,
the GUI is the client and is currently written in Java.
---> it's audio server oriented.

in PD, the audio engine is the client of the GUI server,
objects are executed in the audio engine
and can only send drawing orders
to the GUI, not do graphics by themselves.
---> it's GUI server oriented.

Consequently, it would be hard to make
a GUI for both JMAX and PD,
the code is not executed on the same side.

-- i'm afraid i'm not too clear
