enables developers to test ideas on key industry topics related to Java and
XML, as well as to obtain an early look at the concepts and technologies
that have been, or likely will be, employed in Innovision products.
Accessed from Innovision’s Web-based lab, OpenBox is an
XML-to-Java Transformation Facility that enables developers to create their
own Protocol Specific Object Models (PSOMs), or browse and download existing
PSOMs are all-inclusive Java classes representing a protocol or document
object model. OpenBox provides an easy way to develop XML-based
applications using familiar object-oriented programming techniques. The
product comes with an example application, and a tutorial provides necessary
information in how to design, generate and use PSOMs.
Innovision’s XML-to-Java Transformation Facility is based on a formal
specification provided within OpenBox and includes information on related
Java interfaces and specifications. OpenBox also contains Java and XML
tools, specifications, and white papers useful for enterprise and industry
application of XML protocols.
When Innovision introduces new technologies via OpenBox, it will provide
- Background information that shows how the new technology relates to
- The formal specifications on which the technologies are founded
- White papers that summarize the technologies and explain their
- Early access software that demonstrates the technology, and allows users
to try it in their environments
