Sample text

Some software might try to bridge this gap, but it could break with each OS upgrade and generally would be more trouble than it's worth. AppleScript addresses such nightmares by implementing a universal language with which any and all applications could communicate. An application possesses its own object model that can be automated by AppleScript, specifying the objects, properties, and commands that it can work with. In a way, each application's script dictionary becomes an extension of the AppleScript language, offering its unique services to a script in a familiar way.

This can even be a great way to help convince management to consider a full switch to Mac OS X. Instructions can be sent to an automation server is many different ways. The most common is to simply move files for processing into folders that are being watched by a script. When a new file appears, the script “wakes up” and begins processing them. Likewise, users might indicate through a database or a small custom script which catalog they want to build. The script would receive these instructions and begin the process.

Components Components are files that provide basic functionality for AppleScript, Apple Events, and other OSA–related languages. While the process of using or developing scripts does not require you to be concerned with these components, they are provided in this book for informational purposes only. Except when adding or removing additional language components, such as JavaScript, you should never attempt to remove, modify, or be concerned with the whereabouts of any of these components. The Apple Event Manager provides an application programming interface (API) for sending and receiving Apple Events, thereby providing support for the creation of scriptable applications.
