The Role of Object Technology in Distributed Systems

  • Richard Mark Soley


The Object Management Group, Inc. (OMG) is a not-for-profit consortium dedicated to solving problems of interoperability in distributed environments, using a novel approach based on consensus creation of de facto standards based on commercially available object technology. The initial basis of a suite of object-oriented standardized languages, interfaces and protocols is a communication specification called CORBA (for Common Object Request Broker Architecture). The CORBA architecture is dedicated to providing interoperability at the application level between systems executing under the stresses of diverse operating systems, languages, network protocols and hardware architectures. The future plans of the OMG include building on this strong foundation with services and facilities to support the application programmer.
