This paper discusses several technical issues in implementing a flexible coupling model for multi-user interfaces and describes a communication and collaboration mechanism that supports a new dimension af flexibility, namely application-independence and synchronization between hetergenious application instances. The specific technical issues discussed include a comparison of different models for storing the coupling information centrally or locally, and different conflict handling strategies for certain types of UI objects and operations.
