a surface forming a common boundary between two things, especially between two fluids.
hardware that links one device with another (especially a computer).
That part of a computer program which controls the way a program interacts with a user; the manner of inputting and outputting of data, and the way information is presented on a computer monitor; also called user interface; as, a graphical user interface; a character-based interface.
1) A point or device at which a transition between media, power levels or modes of operation is made. 2) The hardware and signal specifications for linking two units of electronic equipment.
A Java construct to declare a set of methods that other classes may implement. IData in the Integration Server environment is a Java interface, implemented by an internal class. Also, interface is a deprecated term used to describe what are now called folders for organizing services, records and schemas within Integration Server.
stereotype=indicates a set of operations that may be defined by one or more classes and used by one or more classes. An interface is an abstraction with no implementation and no attributes. [ uml.interface.gif ] [ uml.client.gif
The materialisation of Reference Points when external physical connections to them are required. The Interoperable Interface defines the Protocol suite and the messages carried by protocol. Transaction oriented interoperable Interfaces are based upon an object oriented view of the communication and so all the messages carried deal with object manipulations. It is the formally defined set of Protocols, procedures, message formats and semantics used for Management communications. It is always indicated by upper case. source: ITU-T M.3010, Q3 domain: TMN usage: EU-P109, EU-P103
An interface is an IDL construct that denotes a set of operation signatures to which an object that implements that interface must respond. Similar to abstract class.
Linkage between reservations made and various accounting functions such as invoicing, reports, etc.
A process that moves data from one system to another.
Series of programs that allow the system to exchange data from one format to another.
Electronic transfer of data, either from or to, the PeopleSoft database. For example, an interface program will transmit PeopleSoft human resource and pay calculation data in a form that is useable by the current Payroll system in order to produce paychecks.
An interface is a named set of operations that characterize the behavior of an element. Interfaces do not have implementations, they lack attributes, states, and associations, they have only operations. Interfaces may also be noted in lollipop and socket notations.
A collection of type signatures, expressing formally the behaviour of an object; its specification (contrasting with its implementation).
The introduction (but not an implementation) of a type at the source code level.
Interfaces allow us to declare the nature of a service without specifying the implementation. The use of interfaces is a fundamental practice in Openwings because services are defined and obtained through the use of interfaces. We discuss the definition of the service contract (interface) in the Design Topics trail. Another good definition of Java interfaces can be found here and here.
A specification of the set of services that a component can provide.
Entry point for a service on a component. The only way where external components can use the services.
A set of protocols between components, such as cables and connectors.
The point at which a specified business process or function leaves one defined component of the system and enters another.
Taken to be the transition between external and internal levels of a device.
An interface is a correction between electronic devices e.g. SCART
Mostly same as "device", see also NIC
To link two or more electronic devices so they can function as one unit.
Surface over which continuous phase and discontinuous phase are in contact.
Interface: The contact surface between the thermal spray deposit and the substrate Lamella Lamella: A thin layer as in the overlayed particles in a thermal spray coatings
Interface: The contact surface between the thermal spray deposit and the substrate Kerosene Kerosene: Liquid fuel used in certain HVOF thermal spray processes. Lapping Lapping: Rubbing two surfaces together with, or without abrasives, for the purposes of obtaining extreme dimensional accuracy or superior surface finish.
The point on customer's premise at which provision is made for the connecton of other than Telephone Company provided facilities to facilities provided by the Telephone Company. This term is nearly obsolete since divestiture and the detariffing of terminal equipment.
Method or piece of equipment for interconnecting units or systems which may not be directly compatible.
Interface refers to the method, or the piece of equipment, that interconnects units or systems that may not be directly compatible.
In the DataBlade Developers Kit, a way to reference a DataBlade module within another DataBlade module. Including an interface in a module creates a dependency on the module providing the interface. BladeManager ensures that the originating module is registered before a module that requires the interface.
In the DataBlade Developers Kit, a way to refer to a DataBlade module within another DataBlade module. Because an interface creates a dependency on another module, BladeManager ensures that the originating module is registered before the module that contains the interface.
In the DataBlade Developers Kit, a set of standard data types and routines in one DataBlade module that can be used by other modules. BladeManager ensures that the originating module is installed before a module that requires the interface.
