The run-time environment includes the MCS server, the run-time server, and the client computers. These three areas may be one server (if you are serving your client application from an application server, this counts as the "client"), or you may have separate servers and you may be running your client applications on separate client computers.
|The client application is the application or Web service that is calling your task. It can be deployed and run on client computers, or served from an application server or Web server.|
In most cases, regardless of your network configuration, to correctly configure the run-time environment, you need to take the following steps. In some prototype environments, some of this configuration is handled automatically by MCS.
