    OSDash - A visual explanation for non-techies

    A lot of people don't seem to 'get' what OSDash is about. So, I created this visual explanation of what the OSDash project is supposed to do for non-technical audiences.

    Bugbyte... you have too much free time, and are WAY too creative for your own good. Very good excellent explanation, very easy to understand.

    Bugbyte, thank you for this explanation, but why not just use Java? This sounds like pretty much the same reason why Java was created

    Simple answer: None of the osdash developers like Java.

    Long answer: The reasoning has more to do with familiarity of the developers than actual technical reasons. Not to mention many of the existing frontends are .NET based (CF and OM for just a few) so they can share the same tools as the web services for generating client code, etc. It is also possible for c/c++ to embed mono and use any client assemblies in .NET. These are well known features for the developers and those same features are a big question mark if Java can do that. It probably can, but again, if you are going to use a language with equal features, you pick the devil you know rather than the one you don't

    Plus OS Dash is not precisely an application. It is service oriented. The service runs on a separate computer, usually at a web address. While it can perform some things that are like applications, it isn't exactly an app.

    Need to look up a PID code? You could write an OSDash service for that. Want to know the location of your car? You could write an OSDash service for that. Want to know the current voltage of the battery? You could write an OSDash service for that.

    You can write the services in pretty much an language you want. It's not so important that they can execute cross-platform. It's more that you want them to *communicate* with all platforms.
