OCLC offers Electronic Journals Online, a service which provides access to electronic journals and high-quality display of text and graphics. The primary method of searching and displaying articles is through a proprietary client called Guidon, which is programmed in C++ and runs under MS Windows and on the Macintosh. The advent of Java support within World Wide Web browsers offers the possibility reimplementing the features of Guidon in Java applets. This would enable OCLC to offer access to our existing databases without requiring users to load specialized software. As a research project we developed a prototype version of a document viewer in Java.
