Web-based simulation is one of the most interesting field of simulation research today. Among many research area of web-based simulation, we concern about what a effective way of building simulation model is since creating comprehensive simulation models can be expensive and time consuming. So this paper discusses how to integrate distributed simulation sub-models as objects for constructing the required simulation model which is more large and complex. We introduce two web-oriented methodologies (such as JIDL, CORBA) and the concepts of agent for assisting modelers to integrate simulation models scattered over the web. SINDBAD, which we designed, is a simulation environment which makes it possible constructing a simulation model with distributed model objects on the web and performing the parallel simulation in a distributed way. It is organized according to design patterns in the object oriented concept. Actually we are on the premise that all the distributed objects are originally composed in a CORBA-compatible way to start with our prototype of SINDBAD.
