eReader Tier - Application Structure

We will find here the components implementing the functionalities:
  • Document Viewer: this component allows to open and read a document in the supported format. There might be different document viewers for a given format. For instance one can install Opera on a mobile phone in place of the default browser for viewing HTML files.

  • Document Browser : it allows to browse files and folder to find the required document.

  • Application Engine (Download and Use) : allows to download and run applications. The Android Market application is the application allowing to download and install new applications while Android allows to run the application in a Sandbox.

  • Search Engine :

  • Inbox : this allows new documents to be pushed by or pulled from other tiers. It ressembles an email Inbox but only for documents. Such a document Inbox is used by iRex on the DR1000s.
