Many applications on the Web require active processing and co-ordination of services. In this paper we describe the design of a distributed 3D animation system built by integrating the Java language, parallel virtual machine (PVM) software, a collaborative mechanism, 3D computer graphics and the Web technologies. To achieve collaborative co-operation and functional independence, session control and system agents are devised in this system. In particular, we propose a simplified collaborative group definition, collaborative policies, and the state of participants to dynamically manage participants in this Web-based distributed environment. Based on our proposed mechanism, the server can efficiently determine the status of collaboration activities.
