The basic properties of object orientation and their application to heterogeneous, autonomous, and distributed system to increase interoperability ar examined. It is argued that object-oriented distributed computing is a natural step forward from client-server systems. To support this claim, the differing levels of object-oriented support already found in commercially available distributed systems-in particular, the distributed computing environment of the open software foundation and the Cronus system of Bolt Beranek, Newman (BBN)-are discussed. Emerging object-oriented systems and standards are described, focusing on the convergence toward a least-common-denominator approach to object-oriented distributed computing embodied by the object management group's common object request broker architecture.<>
