The client is a Java applet and takes care of interactive query formulation, the display of the results, and the relevance feedback specification given by the user. The server is a Servlet using C-libraries and takes care of the image feature extraction, feature weighting from relevance feedback, k-nearest neighbour feature classification, and image sorting.
