Group communication based on standard interfaces

While group communication system have been proposed for some time, they are still not used much in actual systems. We believe that one reason for this is the lack of standardisation of group communication system interfaces. The paper proposes an architecture, using the standard decomposition into services, were services are based on standard interfaces: both interactions between services and interactions with the application use existing, open standards. A decomposition of the group communication into services is presented, along with a description of applicable standards. As an example, a group membership service based on the LDAP standard is discussed.
