Computational components for synchronous cooperation on multimedia information
Nowadays, the design of cooperative applications is becoming more complex due to the introduction of real time cooperation and multimedia aspects. To ease and accelerate the development of these applications it is necessary to build modular and reusable functional components that can be used by application designers.
The objective of this paper is to define some of those functional components. They will be integrated in the cooperative applications to ensure the synchronous cooperation on multimedia objects. For openness and possible wide use in an open distributed heterogeneous environment, the specification of those components is based on the computational language of the Reference Model of Open Distributed Processing (RMODP).
