Technologies and products

XbigX proxy

The Meta technology provides decoding and encoding, analysis, sequencing as well as transport of the X11 protocol traffic. A product based on Meta acts as an X Window Proxy and is stacked between the X Window server(s) and the X Window clients via inter-process communication.

At this central position between server and clients, for instance the product XbigX can break the fixed relation between display areas and communication ports of an X Window server. XmetaX may control multiple X Window servers and provides additional functionalities like rotation and zooming of screen contents or failsafe performance.

XposeXrecord proxy

The proxy principle combined with the Pose technology (products XmetaX, XposeXrecord, and XposeXplay) provides the complete and exact recording of the X11 protocol traffic (output and/or input) for simultaneous or later playback. Because instead of screen contents the generating requests are recorded the resulting recording files are very compact.

The option Multimedia allows to capture, transport, store, and replay audio, video, or arbitrary binary data streams simultaneously and synchronously to the Pose data stream.

XamineX proxyThe X Window proxy XamineX, based on the Amine technology, stores the X11 protocol traffic into a data base (capture). The additional XamineXtool is used to generate and execute simulated input events (replay) and to verify expected outputs. A scripting language provides the abstraction of GUI elements and the direct control of the system under test as well as the integration into arbitrary test management systems.

The product XcontrolX is used to control X Window servers which are remote yet viewable – or made viewable by XmetaX. Automatic mechanisms enable multiple users to cooperatively control a single X Window session.

Xlicense is X-Software's own distributed licensing system, which secures the legal usage of the products.
