We proposed the concept of information object to construct an information system. An information object is the basic unit in the information management system. An information object is an entity that encapsulates the required data and methods in a unit. The methods of an information object can be flexibly installed or changed as needed. In this paper, we apply the information object concept to develop an object-based Web system as a virtual community. In our development, a member object is built for representing a member in a community. All the member objects in our system can be easily composed to become an object representing the community. We will describe the basic concept of the information object and the design of the prototype system developed on the Web platform.
