This paper presents the many standards for accessing data including Open Database Connectivity (ODBC), OLE DB, Active Data Objects (ADO), and Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA). The paper contends that the world of integration middleware is constantly evolving. Initial standards from Microsoft such as ODBC have been replaced by OLE DB, which it then enhanced with ADO. The paper claims that not only do replacement standards emerge, but competing standards vie for acceptance. DCOM and COBRA are two such examples that have pros and cons, forcing companies to make tradeoffs in their application development and interoperability decisions.
