Technology Matrix Cell Transitions

From HL7Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Closed - the technology matrix has its uses; documentation of best practices will always cross cells. This avenue of documentation is no longer pursued by RIMBAA.


  • Document/describe (for all possible cell transations in the Technology Matrix) how those steps could be supported/achieved.


  • Suggestion was made (during the Orlando WGM) to describe the problem-space (type of problem) as well as the path itself. That to determine if different problem spaces lead to different paths through the technology matrix.

The following transitions were deemed to be worthwile of our description:

  • RP-RO
    • RO<->RP: ORM software, e.g. Hibernate, JPA
  • RO-RS
  • CP-CO
  • CO-CS
  • AO-CO
  • CO-RO
  • AO-RO
  • AS-CS
  • AS-RS
  • CS-RS

Note that diagonal cell transitions (e.g. CO to RS) were decided always to involve (however minimalistically) the adjacent *O square (in this example: RO). Therefore diagonal transitions won't be documented/analysed.

The PL-*O transition issue is described on another wiki page: Processing Logic in RIMBAA Applications.

Some thoughts about the UI is discussed on User Interface for RIMBAA Applications.
