  • If one uses the RO cell, how should/could the processing logic be supported?


Grahame pointed out that PL may be done in multiple ways. The extremes are:

  • Content driven logic: based on whatever is contained in the data instance.
  • Context driven logic: based on the context of the data, e.g. based on knowledge that the data conforms to an InteractionId, a MessageType or Templates.


Grahame, in his own application development, uses RS, but uses context-driven-logic (i.e. knowledge that the RS stuff conforms to an interaction), to process things and move to the RO cell. RS has the advantage of re-uses of one generic bit of code, supports private non-predefined models (ad-hoc RIM objects). MS is mostly context driven, RS is mostly content driven.

MvdZ: I think the cells in the Technology Matrix are different representations of information, so Logic will be in the transition from e.g. MO to MO.
