// The ATMProxy is a very important class in the design of this

// application. It is the representative of the real ATM within the

// Bank application's address space. While its counterpart, the

// BankProxy in the ATM application, is mostly reactive, the

// BankProxy is proactive. It must know who its Bank object is so it

// can send it messages whenever the network delivers a request to

// process a transaction. The Network class is a wrapper for an

// appropriate byte-delivery mechanism (files, pipes, sockets,

// TCP\IP, a squirrel with the information on a piece of paper so it

// can type it in with its nose, etc.). The activate method is the

// main driver of the Bank application. The Bank acts as a general

// server for this class.
