To: email@example.com Subject: no 'object architecture' in URI working group From: Larry Masinter <firstname.lastname@example.org> Message-Id: <95Jul11.email@example.com> Date: Tue, 11 Jul 1995 11:15:40 PDT Whether or not the IETF should standardize on an object system architecture (CORBA or no): a) it won't happen in the URI working group b) the URI working group should not wait until it happens so I'd like to close off this discussion, except insofar as it affects the topics at hand: Are there URL or URN schemes that would be used for naming CORBA or SOM or OLE objects? Is there a CORBA/SOM/OLE equivalent for URCs? Conversely, are there ways that URLs, URNs and URCs are reasonably expressed inside CORBA or OLE etc? I vaguely remember something (a conjecture?) that Microsoft's Internet Assistant embedded URLs inside OLE links, for example. These interoperability mechanisms might well make topics for useful RFCs.
