The Open Document Architecture (ODA) was developed in the mid-1980s by several standardization bodies. It is now a stable set of international standards for the interchange of compound documents consisting of text, image, and graphic content. Since 1985 the standardization process has been accompanied by European industrial cooperation projects in order to get early experience with the standard and to develop technologies implementing the standard. IBM's European Networking Center has participated in the projects and has prototyped enhancements to OfficeVision™ platforms to allow the interchange of ODA documents between OfficeVision applications and applications running on other vendor platforms. In this paper, the ODA technology is described, experiences of interworking in heterogeneous environments are given, and the role of cooperating with project partners is outlined.
