Abstract

A method and apparatus for automatically updating data or upgrading and maintaining a plurality of client programs in the same version as data or a program stored at a server is disclosed. Each client computer 302, 303 maintains a list of objects comprising a program, which it is currently operating. The server 300 contains a current client program list listing all objects for a current version of client program which is in operation throughout the network. Each client computer refers back to the server, either on boot up, or through a timed periodic check, to make sure the client contains the same list of objects as the server, and to make sure that the client maintains individual objects corresponding to that list in its own memory. By treating programs and data as objects and sending them directly over a network on top of a transfer protocol, efficient and effective real time maintenance of program versions on a plurality of client computers within a network may be achieved.
