COM on Compaq Platforms: OpenVMS & Tru64 UNIX
Topic Area:
Track: Open VMS
Topic: UNIX Integration
Type:  Breakout Session

Schedule:
11/10/99   10:00 AM     Duration: 90 Min.     Room: 3

Presenter:
Terence Sherlock
Principal Engineer, Compaq Computer Corp  

Abstract:
COM is an object-based programming model designed to promote software interoperability. COM allows two or more applications (or components) to cooperate with one another easily, even if the objects are written by different vendors at different times and in different programming languages, or if they are running on different machines with different operating systems. This session discusses Compaq's implementation of COM on both OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX. It covers topics common to both platforms, such as COM's place in the middleware universe, implementation on server platforms, encapsulation and how COM compares with CORBA/Java; it also includes implementation differences between OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX, such as registry, event logging and authentication (security). This session is designed for developers or architects who are planning or currently implementing COM on OpenVMS or Tru64 UNIX, who are considering moving to component software, or who are integrating these platforms with Windows NT.

Objectives:
Understand how COM is implemented on OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX.
 
Make informed technical decisions when planning and implementing software components.
 
Know how and where to find additional support and resources when implenting COM on Compaq platforms.  

Prerequisites for attendees:
General familiarity with middleware, components, or object-oriented languages.

Required Skill Level:
Intermediate
Assumes general knowledge of topic, familiarity w/basic terms & procedures
