External Application Requirements for NIC
If you write an external application to use NIC to perform a resolution, you can include NIC functionality in one of the following ways:
For non-Java applications, use the interface module NicAccess, an IDL file that provides access to the NIC locator feature. The NIC locator can resolve the value of one or more keys.
For Java applications, include the NIC proxy client libraries to use NIC in client/server mode.
For Java applications, include the NIC proxy client libraries and the NIC host client libraries to use NIC in local host mode.
