This paper provides a comparison of the basic DO (Distributed Object) concepts, namely “object”, “instance” and “class” used in various standards of the DO world. Two families of standards are identified: those related to the modelling aspects (MOF and UML) and those related to the architectural and implementation aspects (CORBA and Java). Moreover, the RM-ODP standard is considered as it includes both aspects. The objective is to help with a common understanding of these concepts. For this, we compare these concepts as defined in these standards according to the four-layer architecture proposed by the MOF standard. An example is provided to illustrate the comparison.
