  37. Common Conceptions and Misconceptions • The PI Application Framework Replaces Prior Development Toolkits • Misconception: The PI Application Framework complements the PI SDK (and PI Server) adding new functionality and behavior in the realms of information organization (aggregation), topology and shared business logic DevNet Unplugged 2002 “Express Your Innovations”

  38. Common Conceptions and Misconceptions • The PI Application Framework is Built on .NET Technology • Conception: The PI Application Framework is built from the ground up as a managed class library. DevNet Unplugged 2002 “Express Your Innovations”

  39. Common Conceptions and Misconceptions • The PI Application Framework Replaces the Module Database • Misconception: The PI Application Framework uses the Module Database just as any other application might use the Module Database. DevNet Unplugged 2002 “Express Your Innovations”

  40. Common Conceptions and Misconceptions • The PI Application Framework is THE PI Development Environment • Misconception: The PI Application Framework provides services and an SDK for solving specific problems in specific problem domains. DevNet Unplugged 2002 “Express Your Innovations”

  41. Common Conceptions and Misconceptions • The PI Application Framework is Sigmafine 4.0 • Misconception: The next major release of Sigmafine, 4.0, is a solution built on the PI Application Framework, implementing solution specific schema (templates), business logic in the form of many plug ins, DevNet Unplugged 2002 “Express Your Innovations”
