Formulation of an Integrating Framework for Conceptual Object-Oriented Systems Design
In this paper, a brief overview is given of the different alternatives to an integrating computational framework. A new framework will be introduced, which incorporates the latest computational techniques and more importantly a mind-set emphasizing flexibility, modularity, portability and re-usability. This introduction will include a thorough review of the fundamental design decisions that went into developing this new integrated computational framework. Distributed object computing extends an object-oriented system which allows objects to interact across heterogenous networks and interoperate as a unified whole. Integrated computing frameworks are discussed, together with data transport techniques such as Extensible Markup Language (XML) and Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) to achieve platform, code and meta-model independent integration.
