Fusebox ASP Version 1.0

Published: December 17, 2000 - John Anderson

Fusebox applications are modeled around an electrical Fusebox in a House. For example, the electrical circuit for your kitchen is separated from your bathrooms and also separated from your living room. In the end, your house has electricity, to the common family they never notices that the electricity is really separated. When little joey decides it would be funny to put a fork in the electrical socket in the kitchen and he blows out the fuse. So the power goes out in the kitchen but it doesn't go out in the living room. This is similar to a software program, when a user does something that the developer wasn't expecting them to do the program throws an error. With Fusebox we separate each application from the other application's in the home thus allowing circuits to be blown without taking out ALL the power in the home application.
