The CAPE-OPEN Binary Interop Architecture (COBIA) project aims at developing an object model developed, distributed and maintained by CO-LaN and specifically geared to CAPE-OPEN, with the aim being to make CAPE-OPEN development easier, portable, quicker and platform independent while keeping high performance in mind.

The project is split into three phases with only Phases 1 and 2 funded by CO-LaN as of 2020:

Phase 1 (2016) was a proof of concept of COBIA through development of a prototype

Phase 2 (2020) delivers the following elements
Software Development Kit (SDK): limited to C++ based native development on Microsoft Windows (x86/x64) for in-process operation
Runtime: limited to native Microsoft Windows based in-process operation

Phase 3 will address cross-platform interoperability
