Subject: RE: Common Business Objects


Please recall that the term being used is common "business" objects, which
are usually defined as "representing the people, places, things and events
that are found in the business setting or domain. Business objects relfect
the real world and thus greatly enhance understanding and communication
among systems developers and people. And business objects reduce complexity
because programmers do not need to know how an object works internally. They
only need to know what the object is and the services it provides." (Quoted
from Enterprise E-Commerce, Peter Fingar, Harsha Kumar and Tarun Sharma,
page 57)

Note the emphasis on business objects as well as the services they provide.

This is where it already is.  THe term object is used to describe
anything which is at least one byte long and has being in the computer
world.  It can be an abstract object with no methods or functions, such
as in a constructor class.

The term "object" should not be confusing nor should it be perceived as
something nefarious.

Just my $0.02 worth
