Abstract: A method and apparatus which allows an object management and delivery system to perform capture, prefetch, display, print and/or modify operations with only a modicum of interaction between the operations of a host computer system and the object management and delivery system. Host computer/object-management system interaction is typically limited to: operation requests transferred from the host computer to the object management system; record registration data transferred from the object management system to notify the host computer that an object record has been stored; and/or error data transferred from the object management system to notify the host computer when the object management system encounters an error in trying to perform an operation requested by the host computer.
