Subject: Re: FW: Parties and Partners
Message text written by Murray Maloney > Thus, 'Market' and 'Party' and helpful terms and concepts that allow you to talk about ecommerce in language that would be perfectly understandable to anyone with even a rudimentary understanding of how the real world actually operates day-to-day. Are we still far apart? <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Murray, I'm where you are coming from - the issue is now that this is not the traditional use of the word market - which conjures up a completely different mental image. I certainly don't think of a Coke Machine as a market - but I see how you get there now! I like Johns' notes and your replies - that looks closer to where we want to be. Qualifying the word market certainly makes it much clearer, as in DispenserMarket for the Coke machine. Then John and your analysis on the attributes is and needs is instructive to ensure the Architecture works. The Coke machine is a great example. Thanks, DW.
