The Open RETS Client (ORC) is a command-line application written in Java, designed to retrieve Multiple Listing Service (MLS) related data from a remote/local Real Estate Transaction Standard (RETS) compatible server. The ORC supports the majority of functional operations as defined per the Real Estate Transaction Standard Protocol Specification, version 1.0. As outlined in the RETS Specification, the client program may communicate with a property or other real estate data server for the purposes of retrieving real estate property information. Designed around a three-tier architecture , the RETS Client has been separated into a presentation layer, an application logic layer, and a storage layer.
