Object request broker

Posted on: November 8, 2007

In distributed computing, an object request broker (ORB) is a piece of middleware software that allows programmers to make program calls from one computer to another via a network.

ORBs handle the transformation of in-process data structures to and from the byte sequence, which is transmitted over the network. This is called marshalling or serialization.

Some ORBs, such as CORBA-compliant systems, use an Interface Description Language (IDL) to describe the data which is to be transmitted on remote calls.
