Registration of LOB Applications With OfficeVision/2

      This article describes a method of OfficeVision*/2 (OV/2)
to provide a convenient way for Line of Business Application to
register with OV/2 as a part of the Line of Business (LOB)
installation process.

      Line of Business applications need a way to register with OV/2
as a part of their application installation process.

      To solve this problem, OV/2 will provide a separate batch
utility that allows the Line of Business application to register
itself with OV/2.  Now, outside vendors can easily register
themselves with OV/2, and Line of Business application users will
consider it a selling point when the applications register themselves
with OV/2 as a part of their regular application installation
procedure.  In addition, user documentation for registering the Line
of Business application with OV/2 will no longer be required when the
application registers itself.  Costs for Line of Business
applications should decrease as a result.  Finally, easy registration
with OV/2 will encourage Line of Business applications to become
integrated with OV/2.
