Object Oriented Interoperability is an extension and generalization of the Procedure Oriented Interoperability approaches taken in the past. It provides an interoperability support frame by considering the object as the basic interoperation unit. This way interoperation is based on higher level abstractions and it is independent of the specific interface through which a service is used. A prototype implementation demonstrates both the feasibility of the ideas and the related implementation issues.
