What\'s new in the VLF and RAMP

  1. 1. What is the VLF? What is RAMP? What have we been doing lately? Why have we been doing this? (all answered in < 10 minutes)
  2. 2. VL – Windows Rich Client
  3. 3. L4Web – Web Browser
  4. 4. .NET – Windows Rich Client/Web Browser
  5. 5. Applications Business Objects or Instruments Filters Instance Lists Commands <ul><li>One Simple Application Model </li></ul><ul><li>Deployable as: </li></ul><ul><li>Windows Rich Client </li></ul><ul><li>Web Browser </li></ul><ul><li>.NET Application </li></ul>
  6. 6. Commands (and Filters) are coded or generated and then “snapped into” the framework for execution Command Handler “Snap In” Component
