X Application Server System (XASS) allows for the creation of 'application servers' and clients which request that applications be run on a server but displayed locally. Servers can be queried for an application or services can be broadcasted. Authentication is provided, and applications are run as the user who requested them, although this is configurable. It allows applications to be served in heterogeneous, load-balanced, or distributed environments.
