Part of the ReFrame Application
ReFrame's Object Services
brings the next level of power and flexibility to Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).
It enables services as small
as a single business rule, or as large as the most
sophisticated system, to communicate and interact with
each other, and with legacy applications and
services, on the ReFrame Application Service Grid.
ReFrame object, no matter how small or simple, can provide services. This technology advance allows
services with very fine granularity and flexibility. The finer granularity produces
services whose programming is smaller, more
easily understood, debugged, and modified to meet
Business processes can be created from Object
Services, each one as small, or as large, as needed.
Existing Object Services can easily, quickly, and
safely, be split, combined, or have their operation changed.
ObjectServices can be completely self-contained or
part of a larger system. They are directly available to other ReFrame
objects and through ReFrame Adapters to existing
applications operating in a Service Oriented
Architecture or stand-alone.
ObjectServices receive messages from
other objects or external applications and produce one
or more messages in response. The response can
be the result of calculation, decision making based on
internal rules, or simple notification. ReFrame
ObjectServices can also initiate messages based on
their internal business rules.
ReFrame enables you to quickly, easily, and safely
accommodate the changing size and shape of your
