Abstract : Walter is an excellent demo tool.
It is an animated graphical display that shows
distributed objects or nodes and the traffic between them.
It works from log files, and these can be either
generated by a real system or simply fabricated.
Walter uses a rather elaborate rule-based system to
interpret the log files.
A rule-set must be developed for the given application.
The demo itself is very clean though, using a virtual
video remote controller.
