Abstract/Description

The goal of the Teallach project is to provide facilities for the systematic development of interfaces to object databases in a manner which is independent of both a specific underlying database and operating system. Teallach's open architecture also allows the creation of interfaces to nondatabase applications in a platform-independent manner. To this end Teallach adopts model-based techniques in the process of interface construction, exploits the cross-platform capabilities of Java, and utilises the Java Beans API to allow third-party interface components to be exploited. Through the use of a simple case study this paper introduces the Teallach approach to interface development, providing an overview of the system, its motivations, and underlying technology.
