OK so if we have to write no idl. What do I do now
with my biz object definitions?!?!?!?!?!
OK. Suppose Object Server is going to take care of
this, and it's not finished, I would like to work on
this. Now I mean. I would guess there is somekind of
mechanism in the Object Server to Register and create
your objects based on a common file format (XML from
DIA?). If so I would suppose all GNUE biz objects
would have to implement a common Interface (i.e.
methods common to all GNUE biz objects) to be able to
create their own tables, etc..
Who's working on this right now?
