IONA SEEN TO LOOM LARGE IN COMPROMISE OVER C++ MAPPING EXPECTED AT THE OBJECT MANAGEMENT GROUP

By CBR Staff Writer

It seems that one of the reasons the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Object Management Group decided to issue a new request for proposal for C++ mapping to its Interface Definition Language was to please new kid on the block ExperSoft Corp, which was said to have wanted to make its presence felt at its first Object Group meeting in Mountain View, California a couple of weeks ago. However, the other firms assembled there reached a compromise that even SunSoft Inc’s Mike Powell was apparently happy with, and it is now likely the group will plump for Dublin-based Iona Technology Ltd’s binding, with a new extension for parameter passing. Insiders say that this balances the contentious issues of ease of programming and flexibility that have plagued the debate so far, and that unless ExperSoft rocks the boat at the next meeting on May 10, it seems likely the Iona proposal will be accepted.
