Remote XML Configuration
The power of KioWare to kiosk-ize a web application is due to its extensive configuration capability. KioWare can be configured to try and download an XML file from a central location everytime it starts up. The XML file contains configuration entries. If it finds a XML file, then it downloads and executes the XML instantly reconfiguring itself. This is a very useful feature for making configuration changes to large deployments.
Furthermore, KioWare can be configured to load in the XML file on a hourly, daily, etc. schedule, essentially enabling KioWare to reconfigure itself on the fly. This is particularly useful for advertising applications that need to update their advertisement attract screens on a regular basis.
