TUTORIAL ^

RPC-GIOP

RPC-GIOP is an another RPC (Remote Procedure Call) mecanism.

RPC-GIOP reuses a subset of CORBA GIOP messages, but don't deal with any CORBA ORB (Object Request Broker). RPC-GIOP reuses the CORBA CDR (Common Data Representation) transfer syntax.

An interface (a set of operations) is defined with CORBA IDL (Interface Definition Language).

RPC-GIOP has a lot of common properties with CORBA GIOP :

EXAMPLE 1

Use rpc1 as current directory.

The file calculator.idl describes the interface of a simple calculator.

First, run :

    idl2pmrpc calculator.idl

Second, run the server (see srv_calc.pm that contains the implementation) :

    perl server.pl

Third, run the client (Tkinter based)

    perl client.pl
