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 (CORBA(R)) and the Unified Modeling Language (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 (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, and Fault-tolerant CORBA. Guest speakers include Miguel de Icaza, 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 Center-to-Center standard for intelligent highways and transportation systems, and the CCAPI 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.
