UML (Unified Modeling Language) has been widely accepted by the industry as the lingua franca for modeling object-oriented systems. In March of 1999, the Object Management Group (OMG) issued a Request for Proposals for a specification to define a UML Profile for Enterprise Distributed Object Computing (EDOC). Since that time, a number of companies have participated in the development of proposals that are in the process of converging toward a single specification. Preliminary proposals are currently available. In addition, OMG has introduced the Model Driven Architecture (MDA). MDA will redirect OMG efforts toward specifications expressed in UML and mapped to multiple technologies. The UML Profile for EDOC is expected to become a key element of MDA, providing the specification meta-model for enterprise systems. A final proposal of the UML Profile for EDOC is expected to be presented to the OMG in July of 2001.

The purpose of this workshop is to engage participation outside OMG and the specification submitter group to discuss how the UML profile might be refined, extended and incorporated in development tools, as well as to discuss related work that could leverage this profile.
