OpenDoc was a compound document standard similar to Microsoft's OLE (Object Linking and Embedding). It was developed by Apple, Borland, IBM, and other companies. Apple was the main supporter of the standard. In 1997, Component Integration Labs, a developer of OpenDoc standards, announced that it was closing its site and that it accepted the strength of the component ideas within JavaBeans. At the same time, a number of other companies, such as IBM, decided to use JavaBeans instead of OpenDoc as well. See "Java."
