Secure Virtual Profiles Portal

01 COMMUNICATIONS announces the launch of a new collaboration portal supporting Secure Virtual Profile applications. Powered by the DNAOS v1.0 advanced XML and JSR-168 Secure Distributed Collaboration Portal platform, this new environment is the first one built on secure distributed application resource management. One of its key features is the support for secure distributed virtual profile applications and collaborative portals.

Virtual Profile applications allow rich profiles to be dynamically assembled from distributed components. The resulting virtual profile is secured and its contents are made available to authorized users, according to their assigned rights and privileges. Users can only access the information to which they are entitled. This technology opens the door to many sophisticated applications including the secure sharing of medical and legal profiles.

Music scientifically defined !

As part of its recent web site update, MusicNovatory.com now offers what seems to be the first scientific definition of Music. There has been many attempts to define Music through the ages and perspectives but, for the first time, it seems that MusicNovatory has managed to corner the term in an all encompassing, yet simple, scientific definition of Music. Composing is an art form but "Music is an intuitive natural phenomenon operating in the 3 worlds of Time, Pitch, Energy, and under the 3 distinct and interrelated organization structures of Rhythm, Harmony, and Melody".

Hopefully, this definition, as the rest of the MusicNovatory work, will help clear misconceptions and disagreements among theorists, scientists, and musicians.

MusicNovatory is a rapidly evolving and ground breaking content-rich scientific document and process, explaining and illustrating the science of Music.

Distributed Entitlement

01 COMMUNICATIONS INC., the company responsable for developing and hosting the hyperbase.com JSR-168 portal infrastructure systems, announced the initial release of the first integrated distributed secure application resource entitlement system. The SOA-based DNAOS-SRE provides unlimited granularity for the control and securing of distributed application resources.

The SOA-based DNAOS-SRE is the first portal-based security system for distributed application resources, protecting compound distributed application resources. The DNAOS-SRE is also the foundation for supporting secure distributed virtual profiles.

One of the key features of the DNAOS-SRE is its ability to isolate distributed business logic from dependency on security configuration, saving major maintenance costs, providing more flexibility and security as well as off loading security checking from the business logic application servers to dedicated security systems and processes.

MusicNovatory hyper-hosted

hyperbase.com announced an agreement by which it will host the revolutionary MusicNovatory web site on its DNAOS-based portal.

MusicNovatory is an interactive encyclopedic web document on the science of music. With a scientific approach, MusicNovatory offers a generic and generative model of music, as well as tools and references.

The MusicNovatory "Definitions" chapter includes interesting scientific definitions of many musical terms, including a unique definition of Music itself that reads like: music is "a natural intuitive phenomenon operating in the 3 worlds of time, pitch, energy, and under the 3 distinct and interrelated organization structures of rhythm, harmony, and melody".

Interestingly enough, "composing music" is defined as "the art of organizing sound in the music phenomenon, for later performance" while improvising music is defined as "the art of organizing sound in the music phenomenon, while performing it.

The 3 worlds of time, pitch and energy are each defined as having both quantitative and qualitative dimensions, where quantitative dimensions are the most obvious, the qualitative dimentions are more fundamental.

Rhythm and harmony are relatively independent organisation structures that combine through the melody organization structure.

From the definition of music, MusicNovatory is itself defined as "an interactive encyclopedic web document presenting the science of the music phenomenon in 5 volumes, including a comprehensive Introduction, a volume for each of the organization structures of music (ie. Rhythm, Harmony, Melody), as well as an extended Applications volume".

The MusicNovatory "Introduction" volume offers Preface and Reference chapters that set the musical, historical, technical, scientific, and quantification contexts for the document, as well as provide required reference and definition material.

The "Application" volume includes sample applications, tips and tricks (ex: Harmony 101), innovative composition courses (ex: fugue, canons, orchestration, and works), Critical Analysis, and Pedagogy chapters.

With thousands of interactive web pages, with multimedia examples and samples, as well as with advanced navigation tools and framework, MusicNovatory offers a unique understanding of the science of music covering all musical styles, forms, and traditions.
