The present invention relates to a system and methodology for transmitting
icon information from a remote system to a local system. The icon
information is extracted from an application residing on the remote
system. The icon information is then encoded and stored until it is
requested by the remote system. When the application is remotely accessed
by the local system, the icon information is pushed to the local system.
The local system decodes the information and displays the icon to a user.
The icon is displayed such that the application appears to reside on the
local system, rather than the remote system, where it actually resides.
