Abstract : The Joint Deployable Intelligence Support System (JDISS) is the primary Department of Defense system for the exchange of intelligence information. Unfortunately, the system lacks an adequate computer learning application. The widespread implementation of universally connected client/server networks, such as JDISS, will soon be enhanced by advanced World Wide Web (the Web) services. The combination of the Web and object-oriented technology, known as distributed object technology, may provide a solution to this problem. Use of the Common Object Request Brokerage Architecture (CORBA) Object Request Broker (ORB) could allow users of the (JDISS) to create customized training modules on-line the distributed object environment. Until JDISS adopts an ORB standard, an intermediary on-line training system based on advanced HTML, Java applets, and JavaScript could provide some of the functionality expected of an ORB based system. Regardless of the technology used to develop on-line JDISS training, certain system requirements must be met by any system to ensure its success. These requirements are defined from both the user and system administrator perspectives.
