Abstract: The implementation of distributed electronic auction applications requires a sound architectural basis. OMG's CORBA standard defines one of the most popular middleware technologies for distributed object systems, and therefore seems to be a good candidate for providing the infrastructure to electronic auction applications. In our paper, we briefly discuss the pros and cons of CORBA in this application domain and present a detailed architectural approach based on two newly designed CORBA services. These services considerably facilitate the implementation of an electronic auction house by performing some of the main tasks that typically have to be implemented by a developer in this context, such as distributing and recollecting bidding data. Besides explaining this core architecture we describe additional components that are needed for the implementation of a complete auction house. A discussion of further aspects concerning a flexible implementation of an auction application such as the support for different kinds of auctions and fault tolerance concludes the paper.
