At next week's Technology Committee Meeting in Dublin, the Object Management Group (OMG) expects to approve the Unified Modelling Language (UML) specification as a potential standard. This will provide programmers with a uniform way of designing and modelling database schema. The Domain Technology Committee is expected to introduce two new Special Interest Groups, one focusing on utilities and the other on life sciences. Work is also expected to start on the bridge between the OMG's Corba standard and Microsoft's rival Distributed COM.
