Common Object Request Broker Architecture CORBA(R)

Category: Object-oriented Technology [OR]

The Object Management Group (OMG) has developed an architecture and specification for object technology use, management, interworking (the exchange of data between object models), and interoperability (the means of message exchange between object request with this architecture and specification include an Object Request Broker (ORB) which enables objects to transparently make and receive requests and responses in a distributed environment. In addition to the ORB, products may also supply object services that applications may share. These object services are a collection of services (interfaces and objects) that support basic functions for using and implementing objects, as well as Standard include an implementation of the OMG abstract object model. They also supply an implementation of the ORB interoperability architecture that supplies the framework for ORB interoperability.
