Definitions for "AoC"
Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (see Classifications), a French term for a denominated, governed wine region such as Margaux or Nuits-St.-Georges.
"Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée". Certifies you that a wine is coming from a defined area know for its "terroir". Besides the need to have the vines planted in a delimited area, the vineyard must respect grape typicity, not overcome certain yields and submit the wines to a tasting every vintage, this to insure quality.
The AOC system of legally defined and regulated wine regions was started in France in 1935 to protect growers in the best of the known vineyard areas against inferior and dishonest bottlers. It is a government guarantee of a wine's quality.
Active Object Class. A dynamic feature of the MWFM NMOS based on the concept of object class files and object-orientation. AOCs are considered "active" since there is no operator input. In this case, the AOC tells the system what action to undertake on the object upon instantiation based on the properties, behaviors and management policies contained it contains. Implementation of the AOC properties occurs as soon as the object has been detected in the network. For reference, a "passive" class can be defined as a situation where the system needs to be told that an object belongs to a particular AOC before it instigates the properties, behaviors and management policies associated with the object.
