The problem with existing Component Architectures
- hi-latency connection is OK for loosely-coupled app’s: network OK for component composition
- not OK for high-performance app’s.
- JavaBeans: composition only by events/listener.
- COM: no real interoperability, not vendor neutral.
- CORBA2: no component model.
- CORBA3 components: OK but complicated, only for loosely-coupled app’s.
Seek to supplement existing CA’s with an HP add-on.
