To help unite the data representation flexibility of XML (extensible markup language) and the interoperability, transactional semantics, and enterprise-level security of CORBA (common object request broker architecture), the Object Management Group (OMG) announced Sept. 21 a membership exchange with the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS). OASIS joined OMG as a domain member and OMG became a sponsor-member of OASIS.

"The OMG is integrating XML into the CORBA technical infrastructure, so that new XML-based applications will plug and play with current applications, including C, C++, Java, COBOL, Ada, and future technologies," says Richard Soley, OMG's chairman. "This membership exchange provides the OMG with added access to events in the XML arena."

OMG also announced Sept. 2 that the CORBA Component Model (CCM) specification was approved by the group's Object Request Broker Task Force at OMG's recent Technical Meeting Week. Final adoption of the specification was expected at OMG's board of directors meeting in November. For more information, visit www.controleng.com/freeinfo , www.omg.org , or www.oasis-open.org .
