On the server side, there are a number of Modules: applications ca-
pable of executing one or various Workflow Activities. The work-

In the following part, the different Applications are briefly explained,

• Nexus Applications
Control is one of the major sub-applications of Nexus. Not only
does Control schedule all the jobs, it is the link between the dif-
ferent processes, and takes care of the internal communication.
This application knows the status of any job, workflow, module,...
at any given time. The other sub-applications will be launched by
Control when needed for a specific task, and quit afterwards to
save resources. Some of the most used processes are the Print-
driver, Interpreter, Merger, Bander, Assembler, Trapper, Purger,
Processor, Browser,... and will be found as separate executables
in the Nexus folder. However, the user will not have to deal with
them as separate applications with individual user interfaces.
