The Common Object Request Broker Architecture is a successful, standardized system integration framework based on distributed object technologies. An ongoing effort concerns extensions to CORBA to incorporate realtime computing needs. Although the use of objects in real-time computing is straightforward, the technical challenge lies in the replacement of static real-time computing infrastructures with a jexible real-time computing infrastructure, in which distributed real-time client and :sewer objects can be created and connected as needed during runtime. We propose the concept of "Composite Objects" for the integration of real-time and non-real-time computing into a single object-based framework. Within the papel; we present a methodology for creating objects which interface to CORBA without violating real-time assumptions. We present a example scenario which integrates a real-time computing architecture and CORBA components via "Composite Objects ". Finally, we discuss implementation-related issues based on our experiences with "Composite Objects".
