The Distributed Object Computing (DOC) Group is a distributed research consortium lead by Dr. Douglas C. Schmidt and consisting of the DOC group in ISIS at Vanderbilt University, Nashville and the Center for Distributed Object Computing in the Computer Science and Engineering department at Washington University. The DOC Group also includes members at Remedy IT, Riverace Corporation, PrismTech, and Object Computing Inc. The purpose of the DOC group is to support advanced R&D on patterns, middleware, and modeling tools using an open source software development model, which allows academics, developers, and end-users to participate in leading-edge R&D projects driven by the free market of ideas, requirements, and resources.

The most popular and widely used open-source middleware platforms and modeling tools developed by DOC group focus on distributed real-time and embedded (DRE) systems and include:

You can download all the source-code, documentation, regression tests, and example applications for most of these middleware platforms and tools here. You can download a list of the projects we're currently working on here.
