In a web architecture, applications run on a server computer. Examples of USoft server applications are:

· Applications that run in a Remote Rules Service API environment.


· Web Designer applications.

Web Designer applications run a number of Rules Engines on a server computer. The Rules Service manages this. All Rules Engines share the same database account. This is called account funneling: application users effectively share the same general database account.

In this architecture, the Rules Service handles the validation of user credentials, each time a client computer attempts to connect. The client credentials are NOT checked as part of a database log on procedure.
