These components are architected to execute in both real and protected modes. In real mode, all components operate in the same address space. In protected mode, some components are separate processes that operate in their own
address spaces, while other components are shared libraries that can be bound to multiple application processes. Components in each process communicate with each other through shared memory.
Blue Share takes advantage of a flexible architecture that allows for maximum function with highest performance and smallest footprint. See the sidebar for a detailed discussion of the Blue Share architecture.
