Bill, Scott, et al,

I have been quitely watch the process of HTTP-NG and am pleased to see how
things are coming together.  Since working with Smalltalk for Adele
Goldberg, I have seen many great technology not come to pass due to lack of
compatability with key market influences.  Many of us would like to see
these different parts that make up components, objects and the web, come
together like pieces of a jig saw puzzle.

As these specs evolve, is there any attemp to define them  from an
architectural perspective so we can see how other pieces fit or don't fit
(Object Languages, IDLs, Middleware, etc).  DARPA is very interested in
advancing the adoption of these emerging technologies (web, component,
object) and is looking for ways that these elements can be configured
together into an enterprise architect view.  We are using OSI's Reference
Model for Open Distributed Processing (RM-ODP) as our guiding light.  We are
also working on a modeling tool called Distributed Component-based
Architecture Modeler (DCAM) to help define these sub-assemblies
(frameworks).

Is this a group who would be interested in further these goals.  More
information can be found at the following URL;
www.omg.org/library/ic.htm

The OMG is only one of the supporting organizations, and has provided a
meeting venue and place to post our documents.  IEEE, TOG, AOG, and others
also are working towards this common goal.  The OBJECTive Technology Group
has the tasking to ferret this out.  The Interoperability Clearinghouse
Working Group is meeting at the next OMG meeting on Sept. 14/15 in Seattle
WA, and at the next IEEE meeting on Sept. 17 in Washington DC.

Please let me know if there are common interests.

Regards,

john
