Integrating the Application and Service Domains
In this chapter, we discuss how to manage interactions among domains. Because we are bridging the gap from the semantics of one domain to that of another, we call this topic bridging. From a modeler’s perspective, bridging two domains can be relatively simple. This assumes that no semantic content is missing between the two domains. For example, it would be difficult to bridge a video game application directly to the rendering hardware without having at least an intermediate draw engine. We have avoided this kind of trouble by carefully constructing the domain chart for the ALS example.
