  • Documents & Reports
    from paper based documents Hyper documents use hyperlinks to other documents which enables intuitive navigational queries This concept can be used to link static document and report templates to dynamic object attributes and methods which is easier to use than relational query techniques As with the user interface default HTML documents can be automatically created from Java objects Default templates can also be generated to act as the basis from

  • Views of Business Object
    an information system can be created automatically from a Java class which is logical in that the class represents the knowledge that we have of that aspect of the business By centralizing this information in the class one eliminates the need for separate repositories for metadata specifications documentation help and so on Java reflection and introspection enables software tools to inspect and update classes for almost any purpose For example

  • The background to the "OMG finds true love" play
    knowledgeable individuals believing that the OMG is the best placed standards body to assume responsibility for the MACK to ACK process whereby MACK evolves with the key help of the MACK compliant market the medium being the message into the Architecture for Common Knowledge as a suitable universal standard to replace all other contenders in the distributed object architecture stakes The paper was explicit in its intent an enormous change of course is required of the OMG Titanic More specifically interface inheritance has to go But nonetheless there are good reasons why the OMG should take over that MACK to ACK process see my faq q 1 reply Within the OMG I have been targeting Business Object people rather than for example the Architecture Board BO is an area well known to require an appropriate architecture One would think that it should therefore be awash with at least speculative resources More importantly though the further needs I plan to address require a qualitatively better and real business driven Market Vehicle to support and power the effective simplification by Supply of the complexity of real democratic Demand See my paper and faq q 3 reply So in BO we have what should be a happy coincidence of demand and supply as well as being a necessary checkpoint on the MACK route So I see that Titanic starting its turnaround at the latest after nudges by outside demand tugs rather than after easy sighting by its own bridge such being the OMA blinkers that its navigators are wearing the blinkered fixation on a misconception of encapsulation being a key theme of the play Knowing that fools rush in where angels fear to tread and being well enough aware of the quixotic nature of attacks on entrenched views see my faq q 2 reply and consider the whole Scylla and Charybdis scene of the paper and faq q 2 3 replies also depicted on the cover of Beyond Apartheid I have nonetheless been addressing OMG related folk in pursuance of my long shot tactic towards the sooner and better end And that long shot target the Kafkaesque bureaucratic castles of the standards worlds with all their deep rooted interests so underpinning the immobility of the Charybdian figtree has indeed started to appear less impregnable than might normally be feared After all MACK is The Mainstream and I certainly feel as if I have trumpeted around the walls of Jericho at least seven times And I have lived through apartheid s collapse so I have seen long entrenched resistance suddenly crumble In Beyond Apartheid I had even given what I saw as a feasible timeframe for its fastest movement the 5 year period starting 3 years from then which was May 1986 Naïve revolutionaries thought that too long for the hard bitten realists it was far too short In the event May 1989 was the middle of FW de Klerk s January to September rise to the Presidency while Nelson Mandela s Presidential Inauguration was in May 1994 As boldly I predict that it will be between one and two years from now that MACK will convincingly replace the OMA and DCOM HTML Java Beans etc as the architecture of choice for Internet leveraging applications My brief e mail correspondence with Cory Casanave the Chair of the OMG s BODTF Business Object Domain Task Force and the glimpses he candidly gave me into life within the OMG straightjacket my term led to my reference to him in the play as one of the more perspicacious of the BOF chefs There is also the TRC Inc s submission the one exception noted in the play with its commendable generic agent basis further open endedness and considerable MACK compatibility that I have already expanded on at length to them and to the JBOF team That was in the previous or Worker s Day document so often referred to in the play It also contained the dense paragraph expanded into the play s sub headings under the Some key details heading So the play itself was a postscript to that document That document was addressed to the TRC Inc s Peter Walker who is also the Chair of the OMG s ORB OS TF Object Request Broker Object Services Task Force So notwithstanding the titanic exercise the MACK strategy openly envisages with respect to the OMG I believe there may still be some tiny hope that the OMG will not proceed on any presently proposed BOF basis and a better hope that there may be at least one perspicacious and entrepreneurial OMG related person who will realize that it would be better to join Jack in the kitchen But what if none of them do The more likely but messier OMG future Since it is difficult to sell a project without disclosing its key details though as I have recommended do read at least my faq q 3 reply I have already placed my bet that the OMG will choose the JBOF submission for its future BOF Business Object Facility There are better semantics in that submission than in the others though that is not saying much so if any of those submissions is to be chosen it must be that one that is if the OMG wishes to persist with their present make believe as portrayed in the play in their present OMA and all those disorganized island classes that a Classical Object Model inexorably leads to the latter quote being from Grady Booch as requoted in the play from my faq q 7 reply though perhaps I make more of it than he intended As I have said above that would be at great opportunity cost to all concerned that is everybody remotely concerned with IT whether as supplier or user None of the would be complete BOF submissions have anything sufficiently different from the status quo to give them any chance of competing against Microsoft as I have already set out in greater detail
