|O.K.I.: Open Knowledge Initiative|
The Open Knowledge Initiative (O.K.I.) is an organization responsible for the specification of software interfaces comprising a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) based on high level service definitions. The Open Knowledge Initiate was initially sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the IMS Global Learning Consortium. O.K.I. has designed and published a suite of software interfaces known as Open Service Interface Definitions (OSIDs), each of which describes a logical computing service.
Object-Oriented. An object-oriented database language.
|OATH: Object-Oriented Abstract Type Hier|
Object-oriented Abstract Type Hierarchy (OATH) is a class library for C++ from Texas Instruments.
On A Totally Unrelated Subject.
A procedural programming language which evolved from Modula-2.
|OBEX: OBject Exchange|
OBject EXchange (OBEX or IrOBEX) is a communications protocol that facilitates the exchange of binary objects between devices. It is maintained by the Infrared Data Association but has also been adopted by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group and the SyncML wing of the OMA. One of OBEX's earliest popular applications was in the Palm III personal digital assistant. This PDA and its many successors use OBEX to exchange business cards, data, even applications.
In object-oriented design or programming, a data item with instructions for the operations to be performed on it.
Generally, Object refers to any item that can be individually selected and manipulated. In computer programming such as object-oriented programming, an object is an individual unit of run-time data storage that is used as the basic building block of programs. These objects act on each other, as opposed to a traditional view in which a program may be seen as a collection of functions, or simply as a list of instructions to the computer. Each object is capable of receiving messages, processing data, and sending messages to other objects. Each object can be viewed as an independent little machine or actor with a distinct role or responsibility.
Machine code generated from source code by an assembler or compiler.
Object code, also known as object file, is an intermediate representation of code generated by a compiler after it processes a source code file. Object files contain compact, pre-parsed code, often called binaries, that can be linked with other object files to generate a final executable or code library. An object file is mostly machine code that can be directly executed by a computer's CPU. An object file contains not only the object code, but also relocation information that the linker uses to assemble multiple object files into an executable or library, program symbols (names of variables and functions), and debugging information.
- The computer that receives a communication, such as a fax or modem transmission. 2. The computer into which a program from a source computer is loaded and run.
Object database refers to a type of database in which information is represented in the form of objects. The database management system for an object database is referred to variously as a ODBMS or OODBMS. Object database technologies becomes useful when: 1) a relational database becomes cumbersome to be used with complex data; 2) data is generally manipulated by application software written using object-oriented programming languages and tools such as C++, Java, Borland Delphi and C#, and the code needed to translate between this representation of the data, and the tuples of a relational database can be tedious to write and time-consuming to execute.
|object linking and embedding|
(OLE). A way of connecting a file with objects from other applications. For example, a page layout file could have a spreadsheet chart, a word processing file, and a graphics file included. An embedded object becomes part of the document in which it is embedded, and is no longer linked to the source document. A linked object is displayed in the destination document but remains in the source document; when a change is made in a linked object, all files connected with it are automatically updated.
|object linking and embedding custom cont|
(OCX). A special-purpose program module that can be used by applications in a Windows environment. Examples of functions handled by OCX are scroll bars and the ability to resize windows. OCX controls superseded VBX controls, which were written in Visual Basic. OCX controls have been superseded by ActiveX controls; however, ActiveX is backward compatible with OCX. OCX control files end with the .OCX extension.
An object-oriented version of the Lisp programming language.
|Object Management Group|
(OMG). An international consortium that sets standards for object-oriented programming.
