  1. OMG Issue

COAS — alternative verbs for Federated access and put_obsevations

  • Key: COAS-7
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2936
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Level Seven Visualizations ( Jon Farmer)
  • Summary:

    here are our desired positions in dimensions of connotation:

    • multiple instance vs. one instance vs. one atribute of an instance - we
      want to connote multiple instances
    • does a the requestor get any info back - no.

    ======== options, their thesaurus equivalents, and assessment for
    suitability ===================
    place - connotes location to explicitly

    put or put-in (insert, place, store, publish) - reasonable but can we do

    write (communicate, mark, record) - implies recording on a persistence
    medium - too underlying technology-connotative

    load - has precedent in pids; implies multiple, and already understood in IS
    as "batch" and one-way-transfer with no significant return info. I also lke
    the "ammo" connotation. We are "charging" a sevice with useful info or
    potential energy - ready to be put to useful work.

    add - in o-o circles, this connotes adding an (singleton) entry to a
    dictionary or to a container.

    set - connotes setting a property or a primitive value. no batch semantics

    ======================= my recommendation

    interface: ObservationLoader (a utility with a manifest puprose)

    operation: load_observations
