Description

Detailed Description of the Invention

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a general-purpose application program sharing system, that is, a general-purpose application program for a plurality of terminals (personal computers).
More specifically, it is possible to share a general-purpose application program that updates the display screen based on user command input and character input, such as a word processor and a spreadsheet, with a remote party. The present invention relates to a screen sharing general-purpose application program sharing system.

A user of a plurality of communication terminals connected by a communication line such as a telephone line, ISDN, LAN, etc., talks by voice and draws on a common document displayed on the screen, or communicates while instructing with a pointer. A teleconference system (so-called video conference system) that can explain to the other party has already been put to practical use. In such a teleconference system, there is a demand for a technology capable of directly sharing a general-purpose application program such as a word processor or a spreadsheet.

[0003]

2. Description of the Related Art There are a centralized system and a distributed system as a system in which an existing general-purpose application program is directly shared by a plurality of terminals without modification. In the distributed method that does not require a high-speed communication line, not only the input event input to the application process is sent to the application process of its own terminal, but also to the application process of the communication partner terminal, so that the application program can be shared It is feasible. Such a technique is disclosed, for example, in "Dialogue Support Device" of Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 3-17763.
Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 4-186456, “Joint Information Processing System and Workstation”, Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 4-307648, “Group Joint Working Device”, Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 5-233507, “Group Joint Working Message Communication System” ] And the like.

On the other hand, by transferring the input operation right of the shared application program among the users,
It has been proposed to control such that a situation in which a plurality of users make inputs at the same time can be avoided. Examples of such techniques include "communication terminal conference system" in JP-A-63-1139, "joint work support system" in JP-A-4-111151, and "joint work for JP-A-5-46559". Information processing device "and the like.

Furthermore, there is also a technique of sharing the application program by transmitting not only the input event but also the drawing command of the application program operating on one terminal to the other terminal to realize the same screen on both terminals. Being developed. Such a technique is disclosed, for example, in JP-A-4-186456, "Cooperative information processing system and workstation", JP-A-6-223010, "Remote collaborative work implementation method and transmission side apparatus and reception side apparatus",
It is disclosed in, for example, "Distributed Application Execution Device and Method" of Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 5-46568.

[0006] Further, there is also a technique for transmitting a difference between a screen after being drawn and a screen before being changed as bitmap data to a remote terminal instead of a screen drawing command to realize screen sharing.
For example, a "workstation" disclosed in JP-A-6-161957 has been developed.

Furthermore, as a method of displaying a handwritten comment or a pointer on a screen displayed by a general-purpose application program having no handwriting function or pointer function, bitmap information on the screen displayed by the general-purpose application program or general-purpose information is displayed. A system has also been developed in which bitmap information generated by giving a print command to an application program is displayed on a specially developed shared electronic blackboard and then a handwritten comment or pointer is displayed.

[0008]

For example, in a system in which an application program is shared by transmitting a screen drawing command, all mouse events in the second terminal are transmitted to the first terminal to generate the second event.
It is possible to execute command instructions from all terminals to all application programs. However, when an input / output device such as a print command or a file open command, or a command related to control of the storage device is executed from the second terminal, only the external device connected to the first terminal is driven, The drive control of the external device connected to the second terminal cannot be performed.

Further, by transmitting a mouse event in the second terminal to the first terminal, it is possible to open or save a file in the storage device connected to the first terminal, and The specific number of people is second
There is a risk of changing the file of the first terminal from this terminal.

Furthermore, when a file in which moving image and audio information is stored is shared by some application program, audio or the like is output from an external device such as an audio output device connected to the first terminal. No audio information or video information is transferred to this terminal.

[0011]

Rights control means 27,
Communication control means 28 for transferring data from the application execution means 22 to a communication partner, and application execution means
It is composed of a file device control means 29 for controlling the file device in accordance with an instruction from 22.

Some basic operation patterns of the application sharing server of the primary side terminal and the application sharing client of the secondary side terminal as described above will be described below.

(1) In the secondary side terminal, when the input means 21 to the application executing means 22 such as mouse input, pen input, keyboard input is set by the operation right control means 27 to "have operation right", , Input means
The input event from 21 is transferred to the communication partner (primary side terminal) by the application execution means 22 and the communication control means 28, and the application execution means of the primary side terminal set to "no operation right" by the operation right control means 14 11 handles user events. If the secondary side terminal is set to “no operation right”, the application executing means 22
When a mouse input, a pen input, or a keyboard input to the secondary side terminal occurs, the input means 21 of the secondary side terminal prohibits the user input at the secondary side terminal by discarding those events in the application execution means 22. .

(2) When the operation right control means 27 of the secondary side terminal receives the operation right acquisition request from the user, the operation right request message is sent to the operation right control means 14 of the primary side terminal through the communication control means 28. To send. Operation right control means for primary side terminal
Upon receiving this, 14 sets its own primary side terminal to the mode of "no operation right" and sends a confirmation message to the secondary side terminal. The operation right control means 27 of the secondary side terminal receives the operation right request acceptance message and sets its own secondary side terminal to the “operation right exists” mode, whereby the primary side terminal and the secondary side terminal are connected. Exchange of operation rights is carried out between the two. It is also possible to transfer the operation right to the secondary side terminal by the user sending an operation right transfer message to the operation right control means 14 of the primary side terminal.

(3) When an event such as a mouse operation occurs on the shared application program screen in the secondary side terminal set to “with operation right”, the application executing means 22 and the secondary side terminal are executed. The communication control means 28 transfers the user event to the primary side terminal via the communication path. The event transferred to the primary side terminal reaches the application executing means 11, and the event is processed according to the received information. At this time, when it is determined that the print command is generated by the command hook means 12 resident in the primary side terminal, the command hook means 12 notifies the application execution means 11 to that effect. When the application execution unit 11 checks the state of the operation right control unit 14 and confirms that the primary side terminal does not have the operation right, the remote print execution unit 15 starts preemption of the print information and sets the communication path. The communication control means 18 is requested to perform processing so as to transmit the print information to the secondary side terminal via the same. Upon receiving this print information, the application execution means 22 of the secondary side terminal requests the print means such as the printer 321 to print via the print command execution means 23.

(4) As in (3) above, the command hook means 12 on the primary side does not determine the generation of a print command according to the result of the mouse event on the secondary side terminal, but rather on the secondary side. By transferring a command generated by a user event to an object such as a remote printing execution button prepared on the operation panel of the terminal to the primary side terminal, the remote printing execution means 15 executes the printing process and the secondary printing is executed. It is also possible to send the print information to the side terminal.

(5) As in the above (3) and (4), the standard print format file of the shared document is transmitted by the remote print executing means 15 instead of transmitting the print information to the secondary side terminal. It is also possible to create and send the file to the secondary side terminal by the file sending / receiving means 17.

(6) When an event such as a mouse operation occurs on the shared application program screen in the secondary side terminal set to "Operational right", the application executing means 22 and The communication control means 28 transfers the user event to the primary side terminal via the communication path. The event transferred to the primary side terminal reaches the application executing means 11, and the event is processed according to the received information. At this time, when the resident command hook means 12 determines that a file open command has occurred, the command hook means 12 notifies the application execution means 11 of that fact. The application execution means 11 inspects the state of the operation right control means 14, and if it is confirmed that the primary side terminal does not have the operation right, the file access control means 13 indicates to the primary side terminal of the user of the secondary side terminal. The access right to the file is checked, and if there is no access right, a local file list display request to the secondary side terminal is transmitted to the application executing means 11.

(7) In (6) above, when the secondary side terminal has an access right, a screen for allowing the user to select which file list, the primary side terminal or the secondary side terminal, is displayed Is displayed. In (6) and (7) above, the application execution means 22 of the secondary side terminal that has received the local file list display request is the local file display means.
Ask 25 to display the file list on the secondary terminal.

(8) As described in (6) above, the command hook means 12 of the primary terminal does not determine the occurrence of the file open command based on the result of the mouse event of the secondary terminal, but the secondary side. Local file display means 25 according to a user event to an object such as a button for opening a local file arranged on the operation panel of the terminal 25
It is also possible to display a file list on the screen.

(9) As in (7) and (8) above, when the list of files in the file device connected to the secondary side terminal is displayed by the local file display means 25, the mouse is displayed. When a file open command is issued by operation, keyboard operation, etc., the local file display means 25 requests the file transmission / reception means 26 to transfer the file to the primary side terminal. The communication control means 18 of the primary side terminal transmits the received file to the file transmitting / receiving means 17
And checks whether it is possible to open the file received by the file execution determination means 16 on the primary side terminal,
If possible, it notifies the application executing means 11 to open the file using an appropriate application program.

(10) The file access control means 13 of the primary side terminal receives an inquiry from the application executing means 11 about whether or not the user of the secondary side terminal has the right to access the file in the storage device of the primary side terminal. In this case, the user is searched from a database file such as a telephone directory and the presence or absence of the access right registered in the file is answered to the application executing means 11.

(11) When the file open is requested in the above (6), (7), (8), the file is transferred by the file transmitting / receiving means 17 of the secondary side terminal. When the file execution judging means 16 on the primary side inspects whether the file can be opened, and the result can be opened on the primary side terminal, and the file further includes audio information, moving image information, etc. Is inquired about the capability of the secondary side terminal. Only when the corresponding file can be played on the secondary terminal,
Execution of file open is requested. When a file containing audio information, video information, etc. is opened by the user of the primary side terminal, the capability of the secondary side terminal is queried, and the corresponding file can be played on the secondary side terminal. Only, the transfer of the corresponding file to the secondary side terminal is executed, and further the execution of file opening is requested.

(12) File execution determination means 16 of the primary side terminal
Checks whether the file can be executed on the primary terminal from the file name, extension, identifier, and other information about the file contained in the given file, and the file further contains audio information or video information. If it is a file, it is checked whether it can be opened on the secondary side terminal, and the result is notified to the application execution means 11.

(13) File execution judging means 16 of the primary side terminal
The file execution determination means (not shown) of the secondary terminal exchanges the terminal capabilities of each other at the start of communication to create a terminal capability database file, and transfers voice information and moving image information to the secondary terminal. It is used for the occasional inspection.

(14) When an event such as a mouse operation occurs on the shared application program screen in the secondary side terminal set to “with operation right”, the application executing means 22 and the secondary side terminal are executed. The communication control means 28 transfers the user event to the primary side terminal via the communication path. The transferred event reaches the application execution executing means 11, and the event is processed according to the received information. At this time, when the resident command hook means 12 determines that a file save command has occurred, the command hook means 12 notifies the application execution means 11 of that fact. The application execution means 11 inspects the state of the operation right control means 14, and when it confirms that the primary side terminal does not have the operation right, the file access control means
The user of the secondary side terminal checks the access right to the file on the primary side terminal by 13 and, if there is no access right, the current file is temporarily saved in the temporary file and then the file sending / receiving means 17 sets the secondary side terminal. Transfer to.

(15) In the case of the above (14), if there is an access right, the current file opened by the shared application program is saved in the primary side terminal or the secondary side terminal is saved. A screen is displayed that allows the user to select whether to save to or both.
If the user chooses to save to the secondary terminal, the file is saved to the secondary terminal by the same procedure as in (14) above, but if the user chooses to save to the primary terminal Is overwritten and saved in the current file of the primary terminal.

(16) As described in (14) above, the mouse event is transferred to the application executing means 11, and the command hook means 12 of the primary side terminal does not determine the generation of the file save command, but the secondary side. It is also possible to request the transmission of the temporary file by transmitting a user event to an object such as a file saving button arranged on the operation panel of the terminal to the primary side terminal.

The operation procedure of the general-purpose application program sharing system of the present invention at the start-up will be described. FIG. 5 is a flowchart showing a procedure at the time of starting the system of the present invention. In the following description,

In the primary side terminal, when the application sharing server confirms that the application sharing client is activated, it checks the activation state of the application program to be shared, and if it is not activated, activates it. The window is not displayed in both the application sharing server of the primary side terminal and the application sharing client of the secondary side terminal in this state. Upon confirming that the application program to be shared is started, the application sharing server of the primary terminal sends the window size of the application program to be shared to the application sharing client of the secondary terminal. The application sharing client of the secondary side terminal changes its window size to the notified size, sets the secondary side terminal to "no operation right", and then notifies the primary side terminal of the application sharing preparation message. Then, it displays its own window 520 on the display 305.

Upon receiving the application sharing preparation completion message from the secondary side terminal, the application sharing server of the primary side terminal sets the primary side terminal to the "operation right" state, and then starts the screen drawing command transmission. To do.
After that, the application sharing client of the secondary side terminal executes the drawing process according to the screen drawing command transmitted from the primary side terminal.

Specifically, the following control is performed. When the primary terminal receives the application sharing preparation completion message, the application sharing server issues a screen redrawing message to the shared application program, and sends a screen drawing command from the application program to the secondary terminal. To start.
In the secondary side terminal, the application sharing client performs the drawing process according to the received screen drawing command,
The same screen is displayed on both the primary and secondary terminals, and the application programs are shared (Sc).

It should be noted that "no operation right", that is, the operation panel 510 of the secondary terminal that does not hold the operation right is in a state in which buttons other than the operation right button cannot be used, and the window 530 of the application sharing client is displayed. All events input from the keyboard 307 and mouse 309 for the displayed shared application program are discarded.

FIGS. 8 and 9 are schematic diagrams showing examples of screens when a word processor is shared, FIG. 8 showing a primary side terminal, and FIG. 9 showing a secondary side terminal, respectively.

At the top of the window 520, there is displayed an operation panel 510 having buttons and the like for displaying the status of application sharing, operation rights, and a list of local files. Further, in FIG. 9, a portion surrounded by a thick line shows a window 530 of a general-purpose word processor application program shared by the secondary side terminals. At the top of this window 530, an operation panel 5 having buttons and the like for displaying the status of application sharing, operating rights, and a list of local files
10 is displayed.

Here, each button of the operation panel 510 will be described. In FIG. 8 and FIG. 9, buttons such as “operation right”, “file open”, “save”, and “print” are shown from the left. However, the operation panel 510 may be provided with various function buttons other than these. The "Operation right" button is valid only when the terminal does not have the operation right, and the "File open", "Save", and "Print" buttons are effective only when the secondary terminal has the operation right. is there.

When the "operation right" button is clicked with the mouse 309, the terminal acquires the operation right and becomes the "operational right" state, and the other terminal becomes "no operation right" state. If the user has the operation right and clicks the "file open" button with the mouse 309, a list of files in the file device of the secondary terminal is displayed, and the selected file can be executed and shared. By clicking the "Save" button with the mouse 309, the document opened by the currently shared application program can be saved in the file device of the secondary terminal. By clicking the "Print" button with the mouse 309, the document opened by the currently shared application program can be output to a printing device such as a printer device connected to the secondary terminal.

In this state, input from the mouse 309 on the shared application program screen on the application sharing client of the secondary side terminal, keyboard 307
The user event input from is discarded because it does not have the operation right. However, since user events for other windows are not discarded, the operation of pressing the “operation right” button on the operation panel 510 with the mouse 309 can be executed. The input event is discarded by the window system API (Application Prog
ramming Interface).

As described above, the general-purpose application program sharing system of the present invention is activated, and the application program can be shared between the primary side terminal and the secondary side terminal. 10 and 11 are state transition diagrams of the application sharing client of the secondary side terminal during the sharing of the application program. However, the figure
10 shows a state transition diagram for a user event, and FIG. 11 shows a state transition diagram for a network event.

On the secondary side terminal, click the "operation right" button of the operation panel 510 on the screen shown in FIG.
By operating and clicking, input from the keyboard 307 and mouse 309 for the shared application program on the application sharing client becomes possible, and at the same time, as shown in FIG. 13, the operation panel is displayed.
The "Operation right" button on 510 is disabled, and the "File open", "Save", and "Print" buttons are enabled. When the "operation right" button is clicked on the secondary terminal by operating the mouse 309 as described above, only the "operation right" button is enabled on the primary terminal as shown in Fig. 12. , Other buttons are disabled.

As shown in FIG. 10, the user event for the application sharing client is transferred to the primary side terminal through the communication control means 28, and the application sharing server of the primary side terminal receives the received mouse event, The following processing is executed for the keyboard event.

First, the operation related to the file open command will be described with reference to FIG. 14, which is a state transition diagram of the application sharing server of the primary side terminal.

In the secondary side terminal, when the “file open” button arranged on the operation panel 510 displayed on the display 305 is clicked by the operation of the mouse 309 when there is an operation right, the application of the primary side terminal A file open command is sent to the shared server.
When the application sharing server of the primary side terminal receives the file open command (S31), it checks whether the secondary side terminal has the file access right (S32). Display the file list in the file device of the secondary terminal in the dialog box on the screen of both the primary and secondary terminals.

This state is shown in the schematic diagram of FIG. 15 for the primary side terminal and in the schematic diagram of FIG. 16 for the secondary side terminal. However, it may be displayed in a window other than the dialog box. As shown in Fig. 15 and Fig. 16, the dialog box displayed on the screen includes "Open" button, "Cancel" button, etc., but other function buttons are not available. There are also cases.

Then, for example, on the screen of the secondary side terminal shown in FIG. 16, the user selects a file from the dialog box and further clicks the "Open" button with the mouse 3
When clicked at 09, the selected file is transferred to the primary side terminal by the file transmitting / receiving means 26. The application sharing server of the primary side terminal determines whether the transmitted file can be opened by the primary side terminal by the file execution determination means 16 (S35), and if possible, executes the file by an appropriate application program. .

If the secondary side terminal has the file access right, the list as shown in FIG. 17 that allows the user to select which of the primary side and secondary side files to open Display the display terminal selection screen (S33).
When the user selects this terminal (secondary terminal) on this screen, the application sharing server of the primary terminal requests the application sharing client of the secondary terminal to display the local file list, and the user When the other terminal (primary side terminal) is selected by, the application sharing server of the primary side terminal performs file list display processing (S34).

If the selected file is not a moving image or audio information file (S36), the application sharing server of the primary terminal immediately executes the file as described above. However, when the selected file is a moving image or audio information file (S36), the application sharing server of the primary side terminal requests the application sharing client of the secondary side terminal to execute the file. This file execution request will be described later.

Further, the same operation can be realized by making the command hook means 12 resident in the primary side terminal regardless of the use of the object such as the button in the secondary side terminal as described above. It is possible. When an event such as a mouse operation occurs, the user event is transferred to the primary side terminal via the communication path by the application executing means 22 and the communication control means 28 of the secondary side terminal. The transferred event reaches the application execution executing means 11, and the event is processed according to the received information. At this time, when the resident command hook means 12 determines that a file open command has occurred, the command hook means 12 notifies the application execution means 11 of this (step
S37). Then, the state of the presence or absence of the operation right by the operation right control means 14 is determined (S38), as a result, there is no operation right,
Also, only when the user of the secondary terminal does not have the file access right, the local terminal display command is transmitted to the secondary terminal to request the list display.

Next, the operation related to the file save command will be described with reference to FIG. 18, which is a state transition diagram of the application sharing server of the primary side terminal.

On the secondary side terminal, if there is an operation right, the "Save" button arranged on the operation panel 510 is the mouse.
When the button is clicked by the operation of 309, the local file save command is transmitted to the application sharing server of the primary side terminal. When the application sharing server of the primary terminal receives the local file save command (S41)
, Check whether the secondary terminal has file access right (S42), and if not, save the document opened by the shared application program as a temporary file in the file device of the primary terminal. At the same time, it is transferred to the secondary side terminal by the file transmitting / receiving means 17.

Further, the same operation can be realized by making the command hook means 12 resident in the primary side terminal regardless of the use of the object such as the button in the secondary side terminal as described above. It is possible. When an event such as a mouse operation occurs, the user event is transferred to the primary side terminal via the communication path by the application executing means 22 and the communication control means 28 of the secondary side terminal. The transferred event reaches the application execution executing means 11, and the event is processed according to the received information. At this time, when the resident command hook means 12 determines that a file save command has occurred, the command hook means 12 notifies the application execution means 11 of this (step S4).
3). Then, the state of the presence or absence of the operation right by the operation right control means 14 is determined (S44), and as a result, the operation right is not shared and the user of the secondary side terminal does not have the file access right. The document opened by the application program is saved in a temporary file and is transferred to the secondary side terminal by the file transmitting / receiving means 17.

When the secondary side terminal has the file access right, the user can select the terminal on the primary side or the secondary side to save the file, as shown in FIG. Display the screen (S45). When the user sees this screen and inputs an instruction to save the file on the primary side terminal, the file is overwritten and saved, and when an instruction to save the file on the secondary side terminal is input, the same process is performed.

Next, the operation relating to the print command will be described with reference to FIG. 20, which is a state transition diagram of the application sharing server of the primary side terminal.

In the secondary side terminal, when the operation right is given, the "print" button arranged on the operation panel 510 is the mouse.
When clicked by the operation of 309, a print start command is transmitted to the application sharing server of the primary side terminal. When the application sharing server of the primary side terminal receives the print start command (S51), it activates the remote print executing means 15 and, after it becomes possible to intercept the print information, the application opened on the document opened by the shared application program. A print command is issued to it. Figure 21 shows the screen of the primary terminal at that time.
The schematic diagram of FIG. 22 shows the screen of the secondary side terminal.

When the information necessary for executing the printing is set and the execution of the printing is started, the remote printing executing means 15 intercepts the printing information for the system (S52) and sends it to the secondary side terminal. The primary side terminal discards the print information after the interception. Upon receiving the print information, the application sharing client of the secondary side terminal converts the print information into information that can be printed by the output device of the secondary side by the print command execution means 23, and prints the converted print information on a printer or the like. The printing means 24 outputs.

Further, the same operation can be realized by making the command hook means 12 resident in the primary side terminal regardless of the use of the object such as the button in the secondary side terminal as described above. It is possible. When an event such as a mouse operation occurs, the user event is transferred to the primary side terminal via the communication path by the application executing means 22 and the communication control means 28 of the secondary side terminal. The transferred event reaches the application execution executing means 11, and the event is processed according to the received information. At this time, when the resident command hook means 12 determines that a file print command has been issued, the command hook means 12 notifies the application execution means 11 of this (step S5).
Four). Then, the state of the presence or absence of the operation right is determined by the operation right control means 14 (S55), and as a result, the print command is transferred to the secondary side terminal only when the operation right is not present.

Further, when printing a document opened by a shared application program, it is converted into a standard print file format, and a file transmitting / receiving means
It is also possible to adopt a procedure in which the information is transmitted to the secondary side terminal by 17 and converted into printable information by the print command executing means 23 of the secondary side terminal and the printing means 24 is requested to perform the processing.

Next, the operation of the file transfer command necessary for the file execution request at the time of opening the file will be described with reference to FIG. 23, which is a state transition diagram of the application sharing server of the primary side terminal.

When the primary side terminal receives the file transferred from the secondary side terminal (S61), the file execution determining means 16 determines whether or not the file can be executed by the primary side terminal ( S62). Next, it is determined whether the file is a moving image or audio file (S63),
Further, the file execution determination means 16 inquires the capability of the partner terminal for the terminal capability file. Then, when the file can be reproduced on the secondary side terminal, the application execution means 11 of the primary side terminal requests the secondary side terminal to execute the file through the communication control means 28. As a result, a file such as voice information or a moving image is executed by an appropriate application program on the secondary side terminal. Alternatively, when a file such as voice information or a moving image in the file device connected to the primary side terminal is opened, the file executing means 16 inquires the terminal capability file about the capability of the other terminal, and the secondary side terminal Only when the file can be executed, the file is transferred by the file transfer means 17, and the execution of the file is requested. At this time, the file is opened also on the primary side terminal.
