The Modular Application Engine (MAPE) allows programmers to write multi-tier applications in multiple programming languages, using different GUIs for the clients, and accessing multiple database systems. Whole applications are stored in the MAPE system catalog which is stored in a supported SQL database server. XML is used for application description. The applications are generally run on the server, but some parts can run on the client.
