Overview

OpenDoc is the revolutionary cross-platform technology that provides a new way of creating and working with software. Developed by Apple, IBM, and Novell, OpenDoc enables the development of a new class of applications for Windows, Macintosh, OS/2, UNIX, and other personal computer platforms. It is supported by a unique industry-wide consortium of hardware and software developers, CI Labs. Essential OpenDoc introduces basic OpenDoc concepts and explains the implications of this exciting software architecture for developers, consultants, system integrators, and solution providers. This book provides an in-depth look at the technical issues of OpenDoc and explores the three core technologies that support its functionality: The System Object Model (SOM), which enables parts and components to work together at runtime; OpenDoc's storage mechanism, which manages compound documents; and the Open Scripting Architecture (OSA), which facilitates assembling OpenDoc parts and integrating OpenDoc with existing applications. It also examines Cyberdog, a set of OpenDoc part editors that provides access to Internet services and offers a compelling example of the power of OpenDoc development.

OpenDoc is the revolutionary new approach to programming personal computers, central to the future of Macintosh, Windows and OS/2 platforms. OpenDoc allows programmers to assemble "parts" to create specialized programs which are document-centric rather than application-centric. This book provides the first technical, cross-platform overview for this hot new technology. The CD contains sample parts in all three environments.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Hayhoe (Ontario institute for Studies in Education) uses a comparative educational approach to examine the history of Chinese education. Her method is one of "storytelling," relying on oral history as well as research. Since Chinese campuses form communities with sometimes several generations living and teaching at the same institution, this method appears appropriate to the subject. The thesis traces the chronological development of Chinese universities, exploring specific issues in its path: modern curriculum, gender issues, the role of teachers, expansion, and political considerations throughout the major republican, socialist, and reform periods.
