First announced by Robert Wahbe, corporate vice president of the Connected Systems Division in October 2007 at Microsoft’s Professional Developer Conference (PDC), Oslo is the codename for Microsoft’s forthcoming modeling platform. Oslo is designed to make it easier to build apps using models and to break down silos of application development. Oslo will be available as an add-on to Microsoft’s Visual Studio development toolkit while it’s under development, although it may be spun off as a stand alone product later. Currently, Oslo consists of the following;
A tool that helps people define and interact with models in a rich and visual manner
A language that helps people create and use textual domain-specific languages and data models
A relational repository that makes models available to both tools and platform components
A user -installable microprocessor from Intel for the 486 microprocessor. Many PCs 486-based PCs are built with an OverDrive socket, which allows the owner to upgrade to a faster microprocessor simply by inserting an OverDrive chip.
- obfuscated URL
Also called a hyperlink trick, an obfuscated URL is a type of attack where the real URL that a user is directed to is obfuscated – or concealed – to encourage the user to click-through to the spoof Web site. For example, the attacker may use a cleverly misspelled domain name (e.g. PayPals.com instead of […]
Generally, any item that can be individually selected and manipulated. This can include shapes and pictures that appear on a display screen as well as less tangible software entities. In object-oriented programming, for example, an object is a self-contained entity that consists of both data and procedures to manipulate the data.
- object code
)The code produced by a compiler. Programmers write programs in a form called source code. The source code consists of instructions in a particular language, like C or FORTRAN. Computers, however, can only execute instructions written in a low-level language called machine language. To get from source code to machine language, the programs must be […]
- object oriented
A popular buzzword that can mean different things depending on how it is being used. Object-oriented programming (OOP) refers to a special type of programming that combines data structures with functions to create re-usable objects (see under object-oriented programming). Object-oriented graphics is the same as vector graphics. Otherwise, the term object-oriented is generally used to […]
