Select the program from the displayed list and click
Start. That's it !!
You should see a new java applet window. If it does not work confirm that you have Java SDK 1.4 or later and your browser is java enabled ( click here for the latest version of mozilla).
The main white area contains circles, with each circle representing one of the distributed processes or nodes. The circles are filled with colors depending on the state of that process.
To select a node click on that node and the node will be displayed
with a bold outline. In the figure above node 3 is selected. Once a
node is selected the displayed variables for that node appear in
the right top box of the window. Hence the variable myState has a
value 0 at node 3. The bottom right text box displays a history of all
message transmissions in the system. The tool bar above the white area
displays the functions which can be invoked on the selected node.
Therefore to invoke requestCS on node 3 click on node 3 and then on the
requestCS toolbar button.
Messages are shown with (multicolored) directed lines.
To switch to the process trace view simply click on the
Process Trace button (right center of the screen).
