The content of an instance of a quality, resource, or variable.

The set of permissible values, expressed either as an enumeration or as a description.

A temporary memory or parameter information typically used in programs, stylesheets, and queries.

Views result from projecting  models from viewpoints, through perspectives. Note that views are not restricted to static visuals as they can also be hyper-linked, animated (2D, 3D, n-D), and multimedia. See also Viewing.

Viewing is an analytical (sensory-based for humans) process used to consider resources. Note that "viewing" is not restricted to static visuals as it can also be hyper-linked, animated (2D, 3D, n-D), and multimedia -based. See also model, and View.

In modeling, viewpoints are context-aware extraction queries that determine "what" modeled resources are to be viewed. Viewpoints define points of view, that are set in or around a model universe (e.g. space, time), and from which models are considered and projected through a perspectives, to produce views that support and address stakeholder (e.g. modeler) concerns. Viewpoints are key resources that define the first step in the modeling  projection  pipeline, selecting resources to be transformed through perspectives, onto views. Viewpoints are typically defined with unlimited granularity, within the model space and universe.

A powerful processing concept in DNAOS environments that applies to

  • virtualprofile and application resources  and that allows them to be made available as a secured  whole, even if in reality they exist distributed  in various formats, databases, and locations
  • interactive and streaming multimedia contents, as in virtual worlds, environments, and realities.
  • server abstraction and management in a distributed server farm environment; for example, mainframes can be used to virtualize application servers.

An existing resource weakness.
