  Design Intranet Processing Layer

Define Your Goals Designing the Processing Layer involves the following tasks:
  • Determine Business Rule Locations
  • Design Process Distribution
  • Design Program Structures

In this activity, you design the program structures, including identifying how the program structures are to be distributed between clients and servers. This means determining which behavioral business rules will be implemented on the client and which on the server. If the database supports stored procedures, this activity determines whether you should implement the rule as a process or database method. If the database does not support certain integrity constraints, this activity determines where those constraints are to be implemented. For object-oriented systems, it also considers what is implemented by the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA).

This activity does not include the definition of any program structures that are required for enforcing security and integrity or for data conversion or bridging, which are described in other activities.
