Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) is a standard from the Object Management Grout (OMG). CORBA uses the Object Request Broker (ORB) to communicate. The following categories of objects are recognized:

  • Applications
  • Domains
  • Facilities
  • Services

Networking components must be in one of these categories.

CORBA allows these tasks to be automated:

  • Object registration
  • Object location
  • Object activation
  • Request demultiplexing
  • Error handling
  • Data framing
  • Parameter marshaling
  • Operation dispatching
