Network Deployment (Distributed operating systems), v8.0 > Develop and deploying applications
This page provides a starting point for finding information about the ORB. The product uses an ORB to manage communication between client applications and server applications as well as among product components. These Java EE standard services are relevant to the ORB: Remote Method Invocation/Internet Inter-ORB Protocol (RMI/IIOP) and Java Interface Definition Language (Java IDL).
The ORB provides a framework for clients to locate objects in the network and call operations on those objects as though the remote objects were located in the same running process as the client, providing location transparency.
