Upcoming OMG Meeting to Focus on Integration of Emerging Technologies Burlingame, CA USA.Business/Technology Editors
NEEDHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 24, 2000
At the Object Management Group's (OMG(tm)) upcoming Technical Meeting Week in Burlingame, CA, USA, September 11-15, 2000, OMG members will apply the organization's open, vendor-neutral, consensus-building process to set industry standards integrating XML, SOAP, C# and other emerging technologies with the organization's established standards, the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (standard, programming) Common Object Request Broker Architecture - (CORBA) An Object Management Group specification which provides a standard messaging interface between distributed objects.
The original CORBA specification (1. (CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) A software-based interface from the Object Management Group (OMG) that allows software modules (objects) to communicate with each other no matter where they are located on a private network or the global (R)) and the Unified Modeling Language See UML.
(language) Unified Modeling Language - (UML) A non-proprietary, third generation modelling language. The Unified Modeling Language is an open method used to specify, visualise, construct and document the artifacts of an object-oriented software-intensive system (UML(tm)).
The OMG's UML specification is the industry standard for analysis and design. At this meeting, four Request for Papers (RFPs) will be issued to progress the language to a 2.0 release. Concentrating on language infrastructure, language superstructure, Object Constraint Language (language) Object Constraint Language - (OCL) A formal specification language extension to UML. The Object Constraint Language is a precise text language that provides constraint and object query expressions on an object-oriented model that cannot otherwise be expressed by (OCL), and UML Diagram Interchange, these efforts will increase both the applicability and expressiveness of this already widely-used standard language. Task Forces of the OMG's Domain Technology Committee, standardizing CORBA facilities in many fields including telecommunications, transportation, healthcare, manufacturing, and many others, will also meet and advance their own standards work during the week.
Sponsored by Fujitsu, Ltd., the meeting will be held at the Hyatt hotel in Burlingame, CA, USA. Tutorials during the week will cover UML, the OMG's Interface Definition Language See IDL.
Interface Definition Language - (IDL) 1. An OSF standard for defining RPC stubs.
2. Part of an effort by Project DOE at SunSoft, Inc. to integrate distributed object technology into the Solaris operating system. , and Fault-tolerant CORBA. Guest speakers include Miguel de Icaza Miguel de Icaza (born c. 1972) is a Mexican free software programmer, best known for starting the GNOME and Mono projects.
Miguel de Icaza was born in Mexico City and studied at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) but never received a degree. , project leader for the Linux desktop GNOME who will present GNOME's CORBA-based interoperability architecture. Outside organizations co-locating their meetings with the OMG include the NTCIP NTCIP National Transportation Communications for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Protocol Center-to-Center standard for intelligent highways and transportation systems, and the CCAPI CCAPI Call Control Application Programming Interface (Cisco) IEC working group, standardizing interoperable software for electric power transmission control systems. More than twenty companies will demonstrate CORBA and UML compliant software and tools.

About The OMG
With the support of its membership of software vendors, software developers and end users, the OMG's CORBA is "The Middleware That's Everywhere(tm)." Since 1989, the OMG has been "Setting The Standards For Distributed Computing(tm)" through its mission to promote the theory and practice of object technology for the development of distributed computing systems. The goal is to provide a common architectural framework for object-oriented applications based on widely available interface specifications. The OMG is headquartered in Needham, MA, USA and has international marketing offices in Bahrain, Brazil, Germany, India, Italy, Japan and the UK, along with a U.S. government representative in Washington, DC, USA. Additionally, the OMG is a sponsor of Ziff-Davis Trade Shows and Conferences in this technology area.
