Technical character data processing system
• A method consisting of the direct interaction be-tween elements of a data processing system – here a server and a client for dynamically generating structured documents – has technical character ir-respective of whether it is defined by technical features
• Such a method is not excluded from patentability if it solves a concrete technical problem with techni-cal means.
• A solution with technical means requires that system components are modified or addressed in a new manner.
• It is sufficient that the execution of a computer program, used for solving the technical problem, is determined by technical features outside the com-puter or, if the solution consists in making a computer program, that the program takes into ac-count the technical restrictions of the computer.
