The study describes some findings of micro-simulation research and analyses software technologies (including Internet-based application development) that can be used for developing micro-simulation environments. It first presents the field of application and some features and requirements of this. A short account and classification of the micro-simulation models is followed by an outline of a basic technological approach to the applications of models. Two technologies - one database-oriented and one Internet-oriented - are then analysed in detail. Two important solutions to realizing this with Internet services, J2EE and .NET are compared, and their effects on micro-simulation and in related fields are outlined.
