Abstract: With advances in hardware and networking technologies and mass manufacturing, the cost of high end hardware has fallen dramatically in recent years. However, software cost still remains high and is the dominant fraction of the overall computing budget. Application sharing is a promising solution to reduce the overall IT cost. In this thesis, a generic application sharing architecture was proposed for users? application sharing in a cluster. The solution aims for sharing of application/software resources with general applicability and scalability. Techniques were developed to coordinate multiple users? assessments for closed system using a broker-mediated mechanism which allows multiple users to access single user software on time multiplex basis through a single logged in user. An application sharing tool called ShAppliT was introduced and implemented in Microsoft Windows operating system. The performance was evaluated on CPU usage and memory consumption when a computer was hosting multiple concurrent shared application sessions.
