<div id="midcolumn">
<p>The Riena platform is the foundation for building multi-tier enterprise client/server
applications. As such Riena is broadening the usage of the service oriented architecture of OSGi/Equinox
by providing access to local and remote services in a transparent way. Using this uniform programming
model, the components of Riena and the business components of the enterprise application can be
developed regardless of their target location. Components are later easily placed on client or
server depending on the business requirements.<br/>
As an example the Riena user interface components will support a business process oriented user
interface visualization and navigation metaphor which can be used as alternative to the default
workbench layout.</p>
