Abstract

Object based architectures, such as the standardized reference model for Open Distributed Processing (ODP), must not only provide for the simple client-server styles of interaction found in data processing, but must also support the rich variety of different communication configurations and dependencies that are found in multimedia applications. To do this, ODP defines both simple two-party communication and an explicit binding model which can describe a wide range of more complex situations. It encapsulates the complexity within a visible binding object.

This paper explains the ODP view of binding, introducing the idea of a binding template which represents a class of communication activity, and then introduces a language called RIVUS for the specification of these templates. It demonstrates, by the use of a number of examples, that such a language can capture much of the behaviour required in multimedia application designs.
