AbstractA data processing method for a workstation is disclosed. The workstation is responsive to a message received from another workstation, the message comprising a request of a type including: (a) a first part containing data indicative of requests of the request type; and (b) a second part containing request data. The workstation executes the following steps: reading the first part of the request to ascertain the request type; dynamically creating an object associated with the request type; calling the dynamically created object to execute the request; and calling the dynamically created object to return any result of the request to the other workstation.
