OMG to Advance Integration Standards.

The latest Object Management Group (OMG) Technical Meeting Week, sponsored by Fujitsu, Ltd., attracted over 500 OMG members and guests to Burlingame, California, USA from September 11 to 15, 2000 where they advanced the organisation's standards efforts and participated in many other related activities. Four tutorials covered CORBA, the Object Management Architecture COMA), fault-tolerant CORBA, and the Unified Modeling Languages (UML). Two other standards organisations - the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission), an electrical power standards organisation; and the NTCIP, working on a standard protocol for Intelligent Transportation Systems - met jointly with the OMG dining the week. Members viewed live demonstrations of twenty CORBA-based products including two showing multi-vendor interoperability: One, sponsored by The Open Group, highlighted that organization's testing program by networking six Object Request Brokers (ORBs): Interstage from Fujitsu, OmniORB from AT&T, Visibroker from Inprise, ORBacus from OOC, MJCO from the MJCO project was entered by Puder Consulting, and TAO from the University of Washington was entered by GMD Fokus. The other, sponsored by the Distributed Object Promotion Group (DOPG), a Japanese consortium, went beyond ORBs to also show interoperability of OTS (Object Transaction Service) implementations from Fujitsu, Hitachi, and NEC.
