          Description

Interface Summary
BoxedValueHelper Provides a helper operations for the boxed value type.
CustomValue If the value type provides the user defined methods for reading and writing its content, it must implement this interface for reading and writing the content in a user-defined default way.
IDLEntity Indicates that this class has a corresponding Helper class.
InvokeHandler Provides the dispatching mechanism for incoming call.
ResponseHandler The interface, able to return streams, where the reply data can be marshalled.
Streamable The base class for the Holder classess of IDL types.
StreamableValue If the value type does not provide the user defined methods for reading and writing its content, it must implement this interface for reading and writing the content in a default way.
ValueBase ValueBase is the basic interface for all CORBA value data types.
ValueFactory An interface for reading an instance of the value type from the input stream.
 

Class Summary
Delegate Specifies a vendor specific implementation of the org.omg.CORBA.Object methods.
InputStream This class is used to read CORBA IDL data types.
ObjectImpl The basic implementation of the CORBA Object.
OutputStream This class is used to write CORBA IDL data types.
ServantObject Together with supporting methods in ObjectImpl and Delegate, provides mechanism for direct calls of clients, running on the same virtual machine (collocated).
 

Exception Summary
ApplicationException This expection is thrown if the application throws an exception, defined as a part of its remote method definition.
IndirectionException This exception is thrown when reading from the ORBs input streams certain specific data layouts (object recursive references to itself).
RemarshalException This is exception is potentially thrown by the _invoke() method of the object implementation, requiring to write the method parameters repeatedly.
UnknownException The wrapper of the arbitrary exception into the System exception.
 

Package org.omg.CORBA.portable Description

This package provides the support of CORBA; see overview of the implemented functionality.

CORBA a system that applications use to work over networks. CORBA messages are binary, not text oriented. They practically cary no "data wrapping" information like XML <opening> </closing> tags. Hence CORBA objects easier exchange large amounts of binary data. CORBA can work in such data-intensive application areas as telecommunications or radio broadcasting. Java programs connect to CORBA objects without care about what platform they run on, where they exist in the network, or what language they were written in. The remote CORBA objects appear to the programmer as the ordinary Java objects and can be passed as parameters in both remote or local method invocations.

The CORBA processing unit is divided into org.omg.CORBA.Object that is exposed to the client and the servant (org.omg.PortableServer.Servant where the method, invoked on object, is finally delegated. It can be multiple objects per servant or multiple servants per object. The servant for particular object or even particular call can be dynamically chosen at run time using org.omg.PortableServer.ServantManager.

All stages of both local and remote invocations on CORBA objects can be monitored and modified using org.omg.PortableInterceptor.Interceptor. The interceptors can add an extra data to the CORBA message (these data can be later accessed by other interceptor on remote side).

Overview of the currently implemented CORBA functionality

The CORBA implementation in the Classpath project is now a working prototype.
