Description

This Generic Function belongs to Working Area Client Realm. This function offers a run-time environment for applications that require direct input from, and/or output to, the physical world, e.g. interaction with human users.

It has the following characteristics:

  • offers computing capacity (processor cycles and memory space) to execute application code;
  • offers (standard) operating software, routine libraries and sub-functions that support/can be invoked by application code;
  • offers a user interface experience (e.g. a desktop environment).

Note how the Workspace Engine is closely related to the Application Engine, as both offer a run-time environment. However:

  • the former is geared more for interacting with the physical environment (chiefly human users), mainly by invoking the Input and Output functionality;
  • the latter is more specialized to support specific types of applications running on top of it.
