Paper Abstract

The Web has rapidly grown to become the standard for documents interchange on the Internet. At the same time the interest on transmitting continuous media flows on the Internet, and its associated applications like multimedia on demand, is also growing. Integrating both kinds of systems should allow building real hypermedia systems where all media objects can be linked from any other, taking into account temporal and spatial synchronization. A way to achieve this integration is using the Corba architecture. This is a standard for open distributed systems. There are also recent efforts to integrate Web and Corba systems. We use this architecture to build a service for distribution of data flows endowed with timing restrictions. We use to integrate it with the Web, by one side Java applets that can use the Corba architecture and are embedded on HTML pages. On the other side, we also benefit from the efforts to integrate Corba and the Web.
