Server Side Details

Once the recipe engineer has selected a target location the relevant file name, cell name, layer list, coordinate and bitmap resolution are sent to a central server which collects requests for bitmaps. It uses a queue to hold the requests (since there may be multiple recipe engineers running multiple copies of the recipe app) and then sends each request to Artwork's rasterizer.

Again, since the customer's recipe server is written in C# a library is needed to act as a communication link between the recipe server and Artwork's rasterizer.
