Image processing applications (IPA) requirements can be best met by using the distributed environment. The authors had developed an environment over a network of VAX/VMS and Unix for distributed image processing. The efficiency was as high as 90–95%. This paper presents an augmentation and generalization of the environment using Java and web technology to make it truly system independent. Although the environment has been tested using image processing applications, the design and architecture is truly general so that it can be used for other applications, which require distributed processing.
