Description of the illustration admin040.eps

The image admin040.gif depicts an Oracle distributed database system. There are two databases located on separate servers: HQ and SALES. The figure shows examples of direct and indirect client connections. Queries are made to the HQ database directly, and queries are made indirectly to the SALES database, through the HQ database, which then acts as a client. Communication between the servers occurs over the network using Oracle Net.
