|Hit the ground running with AIDE, Part 7: Better IT management
The IBM Autonomic Integrated Development Environment (AIDE) facilitates a model-driven approach to touchpoint development, which is a useful, factory-style, wizard-assisted pattern for producing generic touchpoints. However, at some point in the AIDE-driven workflow, the touchpoint must be made specific to a given application. You can do this either at the model design stage or manually through hard-coding. In this tutorial -- the seventh in the series -- discover techniques for creating both generic and specific touchpoints, and learn how to produce touchpoints that have the right mixture for a given management application.
