In this Module, we will look deeper into CORBA's core functionality and begin to uncover the details of how things work.
In this module, you will learn:
- How CORBA clients and CORBA servers function
- More about the key functionality of the ORB
- CORBA interfaces and how they tie things together from end to end
- Where the vendors stand in regards to the CORBA specification
At the end of this module, we will have explored the fundamental structure of CORBA.
In addition to the CORBA basics of allowing objects to communicate with each other, recall that the OMA (of
which CORBA is a part) also provides additional capabilities in the form of CORBAservices and CORBAfacilities. As you'll find out, CORBAservices and CORBAfacilities provide both h horizontal
(generally useful to all industries) and vertical (designed for specific industries) services and facilities.
