Common Domain Objects in the RM-ODP Viewpoints

An important standardisation effort is in progress within the Object Management Group (OMG) regarding domain computing facilities and common domain objects. In this paper, we investigate the very idea of common objects within the Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing (RM-ODP). We show that common objects are in fact common object templates, that different kinds of templates are needed for different viewpoint models, and that agreeing on common object templates is particularly useful for information modelling.
