Common Object Request Broker Architecture and Unified Modeling Language.

Your editor is always trying to connect you to evolving standards that are effecting our industry. This month we introduce you to OMG and CORBA

The following information has been copied from the web site. The intent of this review is to make you aware of OMG as their standards are helping shape our industry.  Visit the OMG site for more information.

The Object Management Group (OMG) was founded in April 1989 by eleven companies, including 3Com Corporation, American Airlines, Canon, Inc., Data General, Hewlett-Packard, Philips Telecommunications N.V., Sun Microsystems and Unisys Corporation. In October 1989, the OMG began independent operations as a not-for-profit corporation. Through the OMG's commitment to developing technically excellent, commercially viable and vendor independent specifications for the software industry, the consortium now includes about 800 members. The OMG is moving forward in establishing CORBA as the "Middleware that's Everywhere" through its worldwide standard specifications: CORBA/IIOP, Object Services, Internet Facilities and Domain Interface specifications, UML and other specifications supporting Analysis and Design.

CORBA LogoCORBA is the acronym for Common Object Request Broker Architecture, OMG's open, vendor-independent architecture and infrastructure that computer applications use to work together over networks. Using the standard protocol IIOP, a CORBA-based program from any vendor, on almost any computer, operating system, programming language, and network, can interoperate with a CORBA-based program from the same or another vendor, on almost any other computer, operating system, programming language, and network.

UML LogoThe Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a language for specifying, visualizing, constructing, and documenting the artifacts of software systems, as well as for business modeling and other non-software systems. The UML represents a collection of best engineering practices that have proven successful in the modeling of large and complex systems.
