OMA (Object Management Architecture)
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
OMA is an architecture developed by the OMG (Object Management Group) that provides an industry standard for developing object-oriented applications to run on distributed networks. The goal of the OMG is to provide a common architectural framework for object-oriented applications based on widely available interface specifications. See "OMG (Object Management Group)."
The OMA reference model identifies and characterizes components, interfaces, and protocols that comprise the OMA. It consists of components that are grouped into application-oriented interfaces, industry-specific vertical applications, object services, and ORBs (object request brokers). The ORB defined by the OMG is known more commonly as CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture).
Refer to "CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture)" for more information.
