One of the strengths of the TINE* control system is the ability to easily make 'simple-client' and 'rich-client' applications. All applications are based on an extensive Java graphics library ACOP**, which provides a vast set of Java Beans for presenting and setting the control system values, such as Slider, Wheelswitch, Button etc. Using any of the standard Rapid Application Development Tools the operators can easily design their own 'simple-client' applications, which are now only a few mouse clicks away. In addition, there are also a large number of 'rich-client', general purpose applications, which offer extensive interactions with the standard TINE systems, such as archiv, alarm, and post-mortem system, as well as scope trace, multi-channel and video analysis, FEC statistics, and general configuration management. Available for many years, these applications have recently been implemented as Java applications using the ACOP beans. They have been iteratively improved and refined after many months of being used by the operators and other users. We offer here a description of these applications as well as the description of the newest ACOP beans available in the ACOP library.
