Factories are the standard mechanism by which domains are initiated. They are also a patented facility used to implement access control policies within KeyKOS. Factories produce sealed domains that have algorithms, address segments, and specific keys already installed. The security facility supported for factory-built domains allows communication channels (keys) of an object to be compared against reference sets to insure that no additional channels have been added. (These channels are also called holes.) The use of factories solves the problem of mutually suspicious users. See also "Builder's key" and "Requestor's key".
In general, an object that constructs other objects. In Twisted, a Factory usually refers to a twisted.internet.protocol.Factory, which constructs Protocol instances for incoming or outgoing connections. See Writing Servers and Writing Clients.
An object that creates (or locates) other objects. Objects are usually created with "new," which is analogous to having a static ( factory) method on the object's class object. Often such static methods are named getInstanceOf() or newInstance(). This allows users of an interface to obtain instances of objects that implement the desired interface, without knowing or specifying the concrete class of the object. This allows a run-time choice of which implementation to use, based on the configuration.
An object whose sole purpose is creation of objects of a particular component. There exists only one factory for every Component ( CLSID). The IID and definition has been carefully choosen so as to be binary compatible with COM.
A factory is the mechanism that binds the implementation of an OSID to the application using the OSID. An OSID consists of a set of entities needed by the OSID. For the most part, these entities are Java interfaces. Since Java interfaces cannot be instantiated by an application, the OSID Factory is how the application asks the implementation of an OSID to create OSID objects that it can use. Depending on the OSID, the Factory's functionality in manipulating OSID objects may be quite extensive.
Trent has over 10,000 sq m of production buildings to fabricate moulds, reinforcement for casting and finishing.The factory site also includes the offices and laboratory. A location map is available on this web site.
A term designating the "Big Three" auto manufacturers: General Motors, Ford and Chrysler. The term "factory days" refers to period in the 1950s and 60s when the manufacturers actively and openly provided sponsorship money and technical support to some race teams.
A building, premises, workshop, structure, room or place where (a) any manufacturing process or assembling in connection with the manufacturing of products is carried on, (b) thermal, hydraulic, electrical or other form of energy or power is used to move or work any machinery or device in the preparing, inspecting, manufacturing or finishing, or in a process incidental to the preparing, inspecting, manufacturing or finishing of a product or is used to aid the manufacturing carried on there, or (c) manual labour is performed by way of trade or for purposes of gain in or incidental to the making of a product, or the altering, repairing, ornamenting, finishing, storing, cleaning, washing or adapting for sale of a product, and includes a facility used for the maintenance of aircraft, locomotives and motor vehicles.
As an open source project for project management, Factory lets you organize actors in teams, define projects, create version-based plans, generate forecast calendars and track statuses. Small and stand alone, it runs on every system with Java.
programming: Some read-only have to have their identification number written into the silicon microchip at the time the chip is made. The process of writing the number into the chip is called factory programming.
