ASSET_A_251: ALOAF (Asset Library Open Architecture Framework) The STARS Asset Library Open Architecture Framework (ALOAF) facilitates the exchange of reusable assets among diverse libraries and facilitates the construction of reuse tools that are portable between asset libraries. The asset interchange objective focuses the STARS ALOAF upon the information needed to systematically organize and describe assets stored within an asset library. The ALOAF addresses the interchange of assets and their associated asset descriptions and model information through the ALOAF Data Modeling and Asset Interchange Specification. The portable reuse tools objective focuses the STARS ALOAF upon the asset library services and standard interfaces needed by reuse-based library tools. The ability to create portable reuse-based library tools is addressed by the ALOAF Service Model along with their ALOAF Programmatic Interfaces. Asset interchange and asset service interfaces are critical elements in achieving a broader objective - asset libraries which interoperate to such an extent that the boundaries between individual libraries become invisible to the end user. In general terms, this is the STARS vision of "seamless" library interoperation.
