SIMTRAP User Manual - Starting a Simulation
The Client-Server dialog contains a scrollable Textfield, which
displays messages according to the status of the current request
passed to the Simtrap model-server.
There are 3 buttons at the bottom of the dialog:
Passes all the data specified in the current scenario
to the model-server, and starts a new simulation. If the
simulation could be started successfully the Textfield will
display a RunID, which is used for data retrieval once the
results of the simulation are available. Otherwise it will
display some error messages according to the client-server protocoll.
Delete the simulation results for the current scenario on the model server.
After issuing this request no further result requests are allowed.
Terminate the simulation run for the current scenario on the model server and
delete all simulation results computed so far. After issuing this request no further
result requests are allowed.
The communication between the Simtrap CLIENT and the MODEL server is based on the TCP/IP
and http protocols. The server uses a simple protocol based on keywords and associated
values and data streams.
This protocol transfers model scenario specifications or parameters compiled and edited
through the Simtrap Client user interface to the Model server. Results from the Model
server are returned with the same protocol on demand, once the user enters the Simulation
