Abstract

This disclosure identifies a product and a technology which allow the user to manage and manipulate object classes and objects in a network- insensitive manner. The Object Editor is a facility designed to work in a terminal-independent fashion and support the primitive EMACS navigational keystroke commands. The essence of this technology is to provide to the user the ability to interactively create object classes in a network-insensitive fashion as well as the ability to add, change and delete objects from these object classes. Furthermore, the editor provides the capability to view the relationships between object classes and to navigate through the subobjects of an object class and manipulate each subobject as one walks through them.

Object Editor

       This disclosure identifies a product and a technology
which allow the user to manage and manipulate object classes and
objects in a network- insensitive manner.  The Object Editor is a
facility designed to work in a terminal-independent fashion and
support the primitive EMACS navigational keystroke commands.  The
essence of this technology is to provide to the user the ability to
interactively create object classes in a network-insensitive fashion
as well as the ability to add, change and delete objects from these
object classes.  Furthermore, the editor provides the capability to
view the relationships between object classes and to navigate through
the subobjects of an object class and manipulate each subobject as
one walks through them.

      Lastly, the editor provides a means to selectively manipulate
objects by providing a selection criteria, thus viewing only those
objects of interest.
