The NCITS Accredited Standards Committee H7 Object Information Management, now part of NCITS T3 Open Distributed Processing, and the Object Management Group Business Object Domain Task Force (BODTF) will jointly sponsor the Sixth Annual OOPSLA Workshop on Business Object Component Design and Implementation.
This year's focus will be on design and implementation of business object component frameworks and architectures that support enterprise application integration. A few interesting questions are:
What is a comprehensive definition of a business object component?
Are the four layers (user, workspace, enterprise, resource) presented at the OOPSLA'98 workshop the right way to layer a business object component system? (See Herzum and Sims, 1998)
How is a business object component implemented across these layers? What are the associated artifacts? Are there different object models representing the same business object component in different layers?
What are the dependencies between business object components? How can they be plug and play given these dependencies? How can they be flexible and adaptive? How do they participate in workflow systems?
How will the emergence of a web-based distributed object computing infrastructure based on XML influence business object component architectures? In particular, is the W3C WebBroker proposal appropriate for distributed business object component computing?
The OOPSLA 2000 Business Object Workshop papers submitted by May 31, 2000, will be published as a book by Springer Verlag. Later submissions will be presented at the Workshop and are candidates for publicaton in next year's book. See instructions for camera ready copy.
