HLA standards for interoperability between various DoD Modeling and Simulation paradigms are being enforced in parallel with the rapid onset of new Object Web / Commodity standards for distributed objects and componentware, emergent at the crossroads of CORBA, COM, Java, and XML technologies. WebHLA explores synergies between and integrates both trends by offering Object Web based implementation of the HLA framework. Our goal is to deliver a uniform platform that facilitates conversion of legacy codes to and development of new codes in compliance with HLA, HPC and Object Web standards. We outline here the overall design of WebHLA, we summarize the system components prototyped so far and we illustrate our approach for one HPC FMS application -- Parallel CMS (Comprehensive Mine Simulator) - in the area of large scale minefield simulation and countermine engineering.
