The screen snapshot service is logically composed of three parts:
11 1 Kurt Biery
12 2 Kurt Biery
* Producers that periodically capture snapshots of a specified computer desktop and send the snapshots to a server.
13 2 Kurt Biery
* A server that receives the snapshots from the producers, converts them to image files in an easily accessible format, and serves them to consumers.
14 2 Kurt Biery
* Consumers that periodically fetch updated images from the server and display them to a user.

In the initial version of the system, these pieces have the following implementations:

    The producer is a Java application that runs on the host that has the display(s) that are interesting to remote users. It is deployed with Java Web Start.
19 1 Kurt Biery
    The server is a web application that runs inside the Tomcat Java application server.

    The consumer is a combination of JSP pages and Javascript that are accessed with a web browser.

        Added shorter intervals for producing snapshots; added a user-specified timeout before images on disk are cleaned up; added functionality to persist the choice of fit-to-screen as one navigates between pages; modified the filenames of the images stored on disk so that they can be traced back to the producer display.

Instructions
36 1 Kurt Biery
As mentioned above, the snapshot server runs inside of Tomcat, and the snapshot producer runs using Java Web Start. As such, installation of the snapshot service really boils down to installing Tomcat on your server PC and enabling Java Web Start on your producer hosts. The following links provide some instructions for installing S3, but they don't go into details of Tomcat or Java installation.
