Abstract: This case study examines the use of the latest software techniques for merging independent Java applets and applications. STScI's new Java interface to the archive, StarView II, will make use of the ST-ECF stand-alone FITS image viewer JIPA. We discuss how state-of-the-art software techniques like Remote Method Invocation (RMI), multithreading, and the Reflection API influence the design of a common interface between StarView II and JIPA. Furthermore, it is demonstrated how the JDBC interface will provide the two applications with concurrent access to the archive.
